Went searching for whippoorwill at Hawthorn this morning with my thermal camera: no luck. The muddy heart of the orchard was quiet, though I did see a Hermit Thrush. The northern slope and ravine area had more activity, with a dozen or more White-Throated Sparrows foraging and singing. In the midst of the local voices was the persistent fweep from a FOY Great Crested Flycatcher. Only warbler I heard was Yellow-Rumped Warbler, though there were brief spurts of an unfamiliar song I didn’t track down.
