Today at Turkey Creek the pinewoods and fields were fairly active but the
hammock areas were DEAD - warblers were scarce.  Marty Newton birded with us
today.  For the first time this fall we had a nice flock of Pine Warblers
foraging leisurely in the Sand Pines late in the morning.    Some were
bright yellow, others nondescript - a large flock spends the winter at
Turkey Creek.
