Birding Scotia Barrens IBA in State College, PA

We started birding around 0645 this morning and it started out relatively slow with just hearing and seeing Gray Catbirds, American Robins, and Downy Woodpeckers. We ended up sighting a flock of warblers with a few species mixed in. The real flock came on us around 0730. A flock of probably 5 to 15 birds consisting of many warblers. Warblers included Northern Parula, Tennessee Warbler and a Magnolia Warbler. Also, a Black-capped Chickadee was present along with a Red-eyed Vireo. That was the end of the morning due to class starting early. Here are some pictures I took this morning.
