S6E1 - The Hermits of Allegheny (Hermit Thrush)

It’s almost sunset and I’ve driven to the closest trailhead I see on the map near to where I am camping: a trail leading to Hector Falls, in the Tionesta Scenic Area.

S6E2 - A Perfect July Morning (Hooded Warbler)

It’s my first morning in Allegheny National Forest and the weather is clear and sunny — a perfect July day for recording birdsong. I’ve parked at the same trailhead for Hector’s Falls as I did the evening before. This time I’m planning to make it all the way to the falls, and perhaps beyond.

S6E5 - Hector Falls, Part 2 (Blue-headed Vireo)

I’ve made it to Hector’s Falls - it’s not a very tall waterfall but it is very compelling to look at. The water flows off of a rectangular-shaped rock face, forming a thin silk-sheet like stream of water. Anywhere there is flowing water, there will be insects, and where there are insects to be fed on, there will be plenty of bird species. More about the Blue-headed Vireo: https://www.allabou...

S6E6 - The Hike Back, Part 1 (Black-throated Green Warbler)

I’m beginning my hike back to the main road. One might expect this means we’ll hear the same birds, but that’s not always going to be the case. Some species move around during the day, or might vocalize less or more often, or differently, at different times of the day. We’ve not yet heard everything this trail has to offer today.

S6E8 - Hector Falls Forestry Road, Part 1 (Black-throated Blue Warbler)

I’ve been driving along the forest road near Hector’s Falls to find some new habitat niches, listening for more songs and sounds. After several hours of hiking, it’s a nice break to cover ground while giving my leg muscles a rest.
