We started off at the Explosives Road Trail Where after an hour and a half of walking, we found some Northern Mockingbirds, lots of Grasshopper Sparrows, one Henslow’s Sparrow, and a ton of Dickcissels. Next, we headed to the Iron Bridge Trail. There we found a very nice male Orchard Oriole, a couple Loggerhead Shrikes, and a brilliant male Blue Grosbeak.
