Hilton Pond 05/15/06 (Mountain Lake)

We were away from Hilton Pond Center for Piedmont Natural
History this week, participating in the Mountain Lake Migratory
Bird Festival in Giles County VA. Spring comes late to the
Appalachian highlands, and festival attendees got to see a
variety of Neotropical migrants just arriving or at the peak of
courtship and nest-building.

Our "This Week at Hilton Pond" photo essay for 15-21 May
2006 is devoted to great times we've had with birds at
Mountain Lake Biological Station and the adjoining resort
and hotel. Depicted this week are some killer looks of a
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and a female hummingbird that
took advantage of his hospitality, plus an active Ruby-
throated Hummingbird nest. To visit, please go to

An account of birds banded during the period at Hilton
Pond is included, along with a few miscellaneous nature
