May 21 - Garret Mountain

The Green Heron continues today and his legs are nearly red, showing his breeding colors. Both Black-Billed and Yellow-Billed Cuckoos made a quick appearance up near the "Castle" up on the East Ridge. Both Nuthatches were seen.

But the star of today was the Tennessee Warbler. Three of these were seen today, as usual, at the tops of very tall trees.
