Big Weekend: High Island

We arrived at Boy Scout Woods at 3:30 p.m. and the sanctuary was hopping with birds and birders. Before we reached the sign-in desk, I'd seen a Brown-headed Cowbird, Yellow-billed Cuckoo and two Red-eyed Vireos.

A short walk produced several more birds, including Scarlet Tanager, Eastern Kingbird, Philadelphia Vireo, Eastern Phoebe and Eastern Wood-pewee.

The drip had several a Gray Catbird, American Redstarts and several Magnolia Warblers.

We debated over whether to stay in the woods or to head to Smith Oaks to see the rookery. In the end, the rookery won out.
