Black Billed Cuckoo at Governor Bridge Natural Area.

Migration is well under way, but the warblers continue to evade me. I’ve been lucky enough to find a few interesting migrants, but others are finding pockets of warblers that I’m not.

I got out to some old spots in the last few days, and birds were relatively scarce in general. It’s still relatively early, though, so I may get lucky soon. In the meantime I’ll settle for the few good birds that came my way.

Tri-colored Heron 2018-1

I found this Tricolored Heron at CBEC this morning. It’s rare for this time of year.

Green Heron 2018-3

Green Herons are noisy birds who will announce their presence if alarmed.

Least Sandpiper 2018-1

A small flock of Least Sandpipers was foraging at Terrapin.

Veery 2018-1

I found this Veery at Truxtun Park. A rare bird for me.

Red Eyed Vireo 2018-1

I didn’t see many Red Eyed Vireos last year.

Swamp Sparrow 2018-1

This Swamp Sparrow was at Governor Bridge.

Magnolia Warbler 2018-1

My only good warbler so far this year, a male Magnolia Warbler.

Black Billed Cuckoo 2018-2

Black Billed Cuckoo 2018-1

The Black Billed Cuckoo is somewhat threatened. They nest north of here. I’ve only seen two of these birds, and the other was at Governor Bridge, a hundred yards from this one.
