Happy May 1st

From 6AM to 8AM this morning, my friend Andy Sprenger and I birded two locations in Annapolis.Of note were two AMERICAN REDSTARTS, a YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT (Year Bird #200) and a BLUE GROSBEAK (Year Bird #201) calling off of Forest Drive near Spa Road and four SOLITARY SANDPIPERS around a fresh lake in a field. The best bird of the morning: a beautiful, singing HOODED WARBLER behind the tennis courts at Truxton Park. It popped up several times in the morning sun for a superb show.
Andy had to get to work roasting the beans at Caffe Pronto, and I've got to get back to work too. ENJOY YOUR MAY 1ST!

Have a good morning,

Dan Haas
