Soggy but productive day at the Bashakill

I spent the morning birding the Bashakill. I had only intended to spend a short time there, but it was quite active and I ended up spending the morning. There was a heavy mist falling and intermittent rain. All the usual suspects were easily seen. Some nice new birds for me for the year included, a PINE SISKIN at Scott Baldinger’s feeders, a male RUSTY BLACKBIRD at the Orchard off Haven Road, a duo of WOOD DUCKS at the pond on the Stop Sign Trail parking lot, and a singing WINTER WREN also at the Orchard. I had no raptors at all in the soggy weather, but it was a nice morning of birding in spite of the weather.
