Birds also heard during the trip were:
Eastern Wood Peewee
Wood Thrush (ID'd by Jody)
Cedar Waxwing (thanks to Jenny's great ear!)
Black-throated Green Warbler
As we passed Route 625 and headed past Fisher's Lookout (where we saw a few Turkey Vultures), we heard the distinctive "pick" of a Hairy Woodpecker and were able to catch a glimpse of it at the very top of a dead tree. That's the first Hairy I've seen in a least four years.
If you go this way, be careful of the poison ivy as there is tons of growing close on the trail. So far, I've been lucky although I have a few suspicious spots on my calf that can't decide whether they want to break out or not.
