Merrymeeting Audubon Field Trip. Walked both South Loop and North Loop trails. Amazing concentration of uncommonly seen migrating warblers - Tennessee, Bay-breasted and Blackpoll. Possibly, a fallout of these species.

    Comments: Actual count. But most likely the number was higher. Amazing concentration of singing birds. The singing was coming from all sides and tended, at times, to drown out other singing birds. As they were singing, the birds were methodically gleaning insects/worms from newly opened oak leaf clusters. The birds were concentrated around the South Loop, which was heavily harvested some years ago - growth consists of scattered scrubby openings with young trees and scattered taller trees.
