Conagree Swamp Event 2007
This year's IDCD was a tremendous success with around 200 events across the UK. Here is a particularly interesting event report that we received from 'across the pond' in the USA: At 5:00 AM this morning some 25 blurry-eyed birders gathered at the after-hours parking lot of Congaree National Park, Richland County, South Carolina for the third annual International Dawn Chorus Day walk, sponsored by the Friends of Congaree National Park. The walk was lead by me (Robin Carter). We had great weather cool (61 F = 16 C), overbirds of passage) included a Swainson's Thrush, a Veery, one Black-throated Blue Warbler, one Ovenbird, and a Gray Catbird. Thanks to the early start we heard a good nesting warblers. There were a few frogs calling, including American Bullfrog, Green Frog, Green Treefrog, and Southern Cricket Frog. Since the weather has been so dry there was no big frog chorus this year. As usual we finished the walk with a gourmet shrimp-and-grits breakfast, prepared by volunteers from Friends of Congaree Swamp lead by president John Grego. What a way to end a bird walk! Many thanks to John and the other cooks! Here is our bird species list. The only species I actually saw without hearing it first was the Gray Catbird.
