Route 3 -- Bonsal Crossroads SE

Southeastern Chatham County

Date -- June 3, 2000
Time -- 5:35 EDT
Observers -- Haven and Minna Wiley


This route is in the Sanford brick belt -- we passed several brick factories.   There were plenty of birds to go with the bricks -- but no sign of the Wild Turkey that crossed the road a week ago when I was scouting the route!   The Scarlet Tanager was about at the edge of its breeding range in NC (so far as I know).
