Common Yellowthroat

These little warblers like tangled vegetation near marshes or wetlands, which is why I spotted one near a creek amongst all the tangly Witchhazel and Brook Alder.

Yellow-billed Cuckoo

Did you know we have a local cuckoo bird? We do! And it's another bird that's easy to hear but hard to spot.

Black Vulture

Lacking a good sense of smell, these smaller vultures soar higher than Turkey Vultures (who do have good sniffers) to keep an eye on where they're going and hopefully follow them to carcasses.

Belted Kingfisher

I had no idea, but these birds actually make a nest burrow in the dirt bank near water, which can be as long as 1 to 8 feet!
