Mother's Day on Onondaga Trail

My son's gift to me this Mother's Day was his company on a day of hiking and birding anywhere I wanted. I finally chose Onondaga Trail in Iroquois and we had a great time together.

A few nice sightings we had included a Sharp-shinned Hawk, a pair of nesting Eastern Kingbirds, a singing male Hooded Warbler, a very boisterous Virginia Rail calling in the reeds, several Blue-winged Warblers, and a Great-crested flycatcher.  I got photos of most of those but not all!
