Eno River State Park Birds

Today Birdwatching101 started off great with a Pileated Woodpecker flying 
across the parking lot. We had a pretty good warbler day. My beginning 
birders started with a Pine warbler that landed about 6 feet from us at eye 
level looking very spectacularly yellow.  At a wild grape vine we found a 
Prairie Warbler as well as Brown Thrashers, Catbirds, and a couple of 
Yellow-billed Cuckoos. At the power line clearing next to the river we ran 
into a mixed flock of Chickadees, Titmice, White-eyed Vireo, female American 
Redstarts, and a Bay-breasted Warbled.  The Bay-breasted was nice as I have 
never found one on the Eno before. Other birds include Phoebe, Blue Jays, 
Cardinals, Chimney Swifts, Coopers Hawk, Northern Harriers, Bluebirds, Downey 
Woodpecker, and Flickers.  Too bad I didn't get Red-Bellied Woodpecker for a 
full sweep of all possible woodpeckers on the Eno.
Beginning birders come join me on the Eno.
