Swan Point Cemetery, Providence RI May 13, 2011

Today at Swan Point Cemetery we had the usual birds highlighted by the discovery of a Northern Waterthrush.

We found it down by the pond having an argument with a parula. It had a dull brown back, strongly streaked breast and a white stripe over the eye (which I couldn't see but Ben could). Its breast and eye stripes had yellowish tints to them. Later when we checked the bird alert we found that there were three Northern Waterthrush reported at the cemetery (as we had suspected, it was a northern). It was a year bird.

We noticed that were a lot of women but not to many men birding today. I presume that the men just where better camouflage.
