My first Birdathon

At 6:30 am, my first bird appeared in the misty rain outside my kitchen window while I was making coffee - my ruby-throated hummingbird friend who visits me daily.  From seven to nine, I walked from the cabin to the valley and saw the following: Red-bellied woodpecker, eastern phoebe, eastern towhee, robin, crow, canada goose, cardinal, chickadee, chipping sparrow, what I am 99.9% sure was a Tennessee Warbler migrating through, and several gray catbirds - one of which chased me for several yards!  I think they might be nesting.  Now that I have had a second cup of java, I hit the neighbor's fields.  I think I lost five pounds walking this morning!
