A little respite was found in the Blue Ridge mountains this weekend however 
still pretty hefty heat and humidity for the higher elevation. Birds were 
fairly quiet. Butterflies were in abundance and many deer with fawns were 
munching along the roadsides. An incredible full moon Saturday night  reflected 
beautifully across Abbott Lake casting Sharp Top in the shadows.

A few bird highlights:

Wild turkey
Common Nighthawk
 Eastern Wood-Pewee
 Eastern Phoebe
Chimney Swift
Downy woodpecker
Pileated woodpecker
Blue-grey gnatcatcher
Broad-winged Hawk
Red-tailed Hawk
Cedar waxwing
