Time- 6:45-12:00
Date- 5/19/20
Location- Edgewood Oak Bush Plains Preserve
Weather- 60 deg. Fahrenheit, strong easterly wind, sunny
Habitat: Mature forest with a VERY dense understory

The name of this location is very misleading as there was no plains to be found. Instead, I was presented with a forest covered in various vines and epiphytes, making it difficult to find any bird, let alone one that is typically found in a grassland. Although I could not find a grassland, I suspect there may have been a hidden one being that I saw species such as the Bobolink. Lets hope tomorrow is more fruitful!!

P.S.- Sorry for no pictures today, I was having camera trouble but the dense understory would have made taking pictures extremely difficult anyway.
