Camp Robinson Special Use Area 4/29/2011

I birded Camp Robinson SUA near Mayflower Friday morning. I was surprised by the storm damage. It looks like a tornado came through the area, and maybe one did, with the storms that hit Vilonia so bad.  The newly renovated shooting range was hit and looks to have serious damage and the adjacent warbler spot we go to had many tree uprooted and broken in half.  However, once you get past that there was no damage.  My target bird was Bachman’s Sparrow and it seemed a perfect day for it, sunny not too cold not too hot not too windy.  I traveled along the areas I know of that have the proper habitat but could not find any.  I did however pick up 40 species of birds including FOS Tennessee Warbler and Wilson’s Warbler.
