Advanced Camp - Day 1

The first day of advanced summer camp with its focus on Project PROTHO has ended at the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest!  After an overview of Project PROTHO, campers set out onto the boardwalk to seek Prothonotary Warblers and anything else that might show its presence.

Below are a few of the subjects spotted during the morning's trip on the boardwalk and the afternoon's stroll off the boardwalk through the mainly dry swamp.
