Although we didn't see anything rare on our outing, we did see a good assemblage of songbirds including hermit thrush, pine warbler, yellow-rumped warbler and the first brown thrasher that I have seen this season.
We also saw tons of red-necked grebes in breeding plumage, carrying out courtship displays with one another and being quite vocal.
Nearby we also found American woodcock and Virginia rail.
Here is a short clip of the Virginia rail. They are really skittish! They are also very skinny, hence the saying "thin as a rail".
