Wednesday night, there was a significant movement of cuckoos, marking the first of major movement of the season. I hand browsed through those data last night and tallied 26 Black-billed Cuckoo calls from at least 24 different individuals. I also counted five different individual Yellow-billed Cuckoos.
Other tallies of note include: 1 Red-eyed Vireo (song phrases) 2 Virginia Rail (keeer calls) 2 Alder Flycatchers (re-be-er calls) 1 Indigo Bunting 1 Short-billed Dowitcher flock (at least 2 birds) 1 Eastern Wood-Pewee (pee-urrr call) Several Swainson's and Gray-cheeked Thrushes 1 Bicknell's Thrush candidate (candidate = a relatively high-frequency Gray-cheeked Thrush-type call, but not classic Bicknell's Thrush call). Many more nights to come! Good birding and night listening! Sincerely, Chris T-H -- Christopher T.
