And I guessed that his text meant there were birds about. I guessed right.
It didn't really seem like a great morning for birding at first; it was gray, foggy, humid; no wind to speak of let alone that great northwest wind that seems to trigger the migration of raptors and others.

Black and white warbler
Black-throated blue warbler
Olive-sided (?) flycatcher
Great black backed gull
