Good birding in the park today. First time I had a veery come into the open and stay there.
Normally they are skulking in the understory.
A study of migration using radio telemetry showed that the Veery can fly up to 285 km (160 mi) in one night, and that it can fly at altitudes above 2,000 m (1.2 mi).
