I woke up at 6:30, and Christian Artuso came at 8:00. Christian came along and he was a tremendous help. We started out by going around our yard. We found some baby Long-eared Owls in the nest (by the way the owlets are branching now). We got about 30 just in our the area around our property.
We saw quite a few common birds as we drove along to the park.
We stopped as we got in the park and took a listen. We got some nice views of a female redstart as it flitted about it's nest by the side of the road.

The plan was to head out east to the boreal forests to find some warblers that breed there. So we hit the road and headed to the boreal forest
This is a very special and beautiful bird. Thanks to Christian who helped us find it.
It flew back and forth across the road and with persistence we got some nice photos, and this bird does deserve some photos.
