a great 12-week course in Warblers, taught by Sylvia Gallagher this past
spring, many of us were eager to go out in the field and try out our new
skills on some "real" birds. Since Sylvia was not going to be leading us
on any post-workshop field trips this year, we were left to our devices.
Fortunately, however, Roy Poucher came to our aid, volunteering to lead
two warbler trips to Texas and one to the Great Lakes region. Many of us
already knew Roy was a great field trip leader and so we eagerly signed
up for one or both of the trips. Everyone had a great time and saw a large
number of birds - including LOTS of warblers. This report is for
those people who didn't get to go on one or both of these trips, as well
as for those who went on one of the trips and want to find out what the
other trip participants saw.
