Shady Valley

The timber cutters, near the end of Quarry Road along
Beaverdam Creek, are doing a number on my favorite
and excellent lower elevation micro habitat for the
Canada Warbler.  This site has featured a stream gorge
of cool, moist, hemlock and white pine along with an
understory of great rhododendron.  Elevation ~ 2832.

A timber worker was there with his equipment today
but so was the Canada Warbler -- singing its heart 
away.  Will its habitat be expanded with more opening
or will it be overcut and fade away ?

I am trying to define the dilemma.

Let's go birding . . . .
