> Subject: Cerulean, Bay-breasted Warbler, and Acadian Flycatcher, east side of Rice Cty Cannon River Wilderness Park
> Today at the east side of the Rice Cty Cannon River Wilderness area, I was pleased to join two other birders , Claudia and Judy. We viewed:
> Acadian Flycatcher 1 (heard several more)
> Cerulean Warbler (good views of 3; more may be present)
> Bay-breasted Warbler 1
> The flycatcher was seen after the first bridge, easily heard. The Ceruleans were singing on and off along the trail for 1/4 mi.
> Red-eyed Vireo
> American Redstart (many)
> Tennessee Warbler
> Common Yellowthroat.
> Rose-breasted Grosbeak
> I later I continued farther down the trail to the short boardwalk and beyond, where there is a marshy meadow with some low bushes and trees:
> Eastern Towhee
> Yellow Warbler (many)
> Common Yellowthroat (many)
> Yellow-throated Vireo
> Warbling Vireo
> Black-billed Cuckoo (heard)
> Sandhill Crane (heard)
> Red-tailed Hawk
> I heard a Wood Thrush on the way back to the car.
> Directions: Take Hwy 3 south through Northfield, past Menard's on your right; turn left (SE) on Hwy 20 and drive about 4 miles. Watch for the county park entrance pullout and gate, on right (west) side of the road. There is no road sign marking the park or the pullout, but you'll see a sign at the gate. There is one main trail, but to continue on the trail to the meadow, make a left at a "Y", and take the trail across the creek bed, which will continue to this area.
