Rock Creek Trail 4/21/2011

I walked Rock Creek Trail in West Little Rock Thursday morning in between rain episodes.  After all the rain the creek was way up from the last time I was there just four days ago.  At the lowest point in the trail, it was just eight inches or so above the water.  The best bird of the morning was a Northern Waterthrush , a first of year for me and first for the trail according to Ebird records.  I distinguished it from the more likely Louisiana Waterthrush by the finer breast streaks, the less prominent eye stripe and the song.  Also found were Blue-winged Warbler, Black-and-White Warbler, and a Nashville Warbler but no other migrants.
