Sweetwater River Gorge Trip Report of May 28th Walk


It was a gray overcast day, but very pleasant for walking.  At least 25 birders joined the walk.  Heard many Yellow-breasted Chats and saw a few.  Seems this is a bumper year for them.  Be sure to check out the eBird report which includes many nice photos of some of the birds seen on the walk.
