Congaree National Park Birding

Robin Carter, 07/13/2006

Today I got down to the park at dawn and hiked the Weston Lake Loop Trail. I found some evidence of migration, or at least of post-breeding dispersal. I had a Louisiana Waterthrush, a Belted Kingfisher, and a Northern Flicker, all along Cedar Creek.

Things really are dry, but I still needed my bug shirt whenever I stopped for a few minutes for sound recording.
