Since the storm slowed, I took the opportunity to run
by Mead Gardens for the first time since my last post.
Finally had some free time.
Boardwalk is in pretty good shape. Yeilded many
Red-eyed Vireos and a few Redstarts and several
The far side of the pond, on the creek side, is a
complete mess. Had to actually stop and orient myself
to where the path USED to be amongst all the downed
trees. If you don?t like the mud, don?t bother.
However, I did manage 2 new Life birds today. Verified
Yellow Warbler and FINALLY found the Louisiana
Waterthrush Alex has mentioned from time to time. That
had bothered me since I had never found it myself. I
believe you, now, Alex. :-)
I took many digitals to document the current state of
the area. I fear this storm might flood a large
portion of it this weekend.
