common yellowthroat in Boone

Glorious spring on Rich Mountain Rd. area of Watauga Cnty.

This morning's new arrivals:  common yellowthroat, veery.

An abundance of chestnut-sided warblers and least flycatchers passing the
news of spring up and down the mountainside.

Also of interest:  the DOT has prepared for the next Blowing Rock CBC
meeting by improving Rich Mountain Rd.  It is no longer the bumpy jeep road
you may have experienced last spring; now it's smooth gravel all the way
over the gap.  Easier access, but more traffic moving too fast for the
birds---the paradox of progress.
