It’s been a pretty birdy three weeks since I posted. Warblers have continued in decent numbers, and kinglets, cuckoos, hawks and waterfowl have added to the numbers. We did have a three day spell of rain, which seems to have irritated my mild arthritis greatly. Most unpleasant for a day or so.
I got to CBEC a few times, and it’s starting to pick up, with the arrival of a few nice ducks. I may have seen some high flying Tundra Swans, but it was only a quick glance at some high flying birds and I haven’t logged the sighting.
We only get to see the Tennessee Warbler during migration.
I usually see Hermit Thrushes in the Fall.
This White Eyed Vireo was flagged as “Rare” by Ebird due to the late date.
This Yellow Billed Cuckoo was a surprise.
Kinglets took over the area for several days. This one is a Ruby Crowned.
Many Eastern Bluebirds were feeding on berries at CCBEC.
A few Green Winged Teal usually show up at CBEC at this time of year.
Pintails often stop at Lake Knapp, CBEC.
Several Northern Pintails are in the area.
Northern Flickers were migrating through CBEC.
I saw more Magnolia Warblers this year than usual.
Mockingbirds are usually resident at Greenbury Point.
A Yellow Bellied Sapsucker stopped briefly on his journey South.
Dozens, maybe hundreds of Yellow Rumped Warblers were buzzing through the treetops at CBEC.
Palm Warblers are always a colorful treat.
There are Gadwall in the Jonas Green pond every year.
A few Wood Ducks are still in the pond.
A single Blackpoll Warbler posed at Greenbury Point.
