Brown Thrasher. As I left the parking lot to start my walk, the hedgerows on both sides of the dirt road were alive with birds! I saw one migrant wood warbler, though did not get a good enough look to identify it. In the crowd I saw a Hermit Thrush, which is the first one of the season for me. There were also the resident noisy Brown Thrashers, of which this was one. Later in the walk I would spot a Magnolia Warbler before it left with the band of chickadees it had joined.
