An incessantly calling first-year male orchard oriole was my reward for making it to the river at the end of the trail.
But this time of year Cutler belongs to the common yellowthroats and the yellow warblers. Some yellow warblers have already fledged, hiding their yellow-gray mottled selves in the brush off of the boardwalk.
Here is the video version once again too big to watch in its embedded form (it's in HD so you can watch it full-size if you please). And I apologize for the cheesy edit, but I wanted to incorporate footage of a raccoon traveling the Cutler boardwalk, completely oblivious to the possibility that I might be at the other end.
