Day 232 - 20th August 2015 - Red-Eyed Vireo, Magnolia Warbler, Ovenbird and Black & White Warbler

More fog this morning - I know we are all getting tired of that old song. The fog monster remains hanging over the province. Rain coming in the next few days - that sucks too, since I need to get out and do some photos for a project. The weather can be fickle so maybe by Sunday it will be fine again. Work day - hoping to get at least one research request finished off and a few other things done.
It was a great day at home. Decided since it was so foggy and it was going to be hot again I would get a few things done around the house right away and then head out for my birding walk. Whipped up a casserole for the next couple of nights, got laundry underway and some other household chores.  The birds are definitely lazy around here, no one popped out til around 8:30 am. Lots of regular Warblers - Black & White, Magnolia, Palm, Northern Parula, Red-Eyed Vireos, Ovenbird, Black Throated Blue Warblers, Hermit Thrush, Song Sparrows and Swamp Sparrow and of course Chickadees.  Lois and I hit the lake in the afternoon for a swim - water is lovely and warm, tea on the deck then it was time to cook supper.
