For the past 8 hours (since before 6 AM on Sunday), we have been seeing a NASHVILLE WARBLER and a pair of YELLOW WARBLERS in our next-door neighbors’ flowering pear tree in northeast Ithaca. It sure seems like the same three individual birds, without turnover.
My expectations bolstered a little by that unexpected Nashville Warbler, I went to Sapsucker Woods to see if any other new birds had arrived (6:30-8:20 AM). I did find a few candidates along the Wilson Trail North -- female CANADA WARBLER, male MAGNOLIA WARBLER, male BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLER, a singing YELLOW-THROATED VIREO, a rather cooperative LINCOLN’S SPARROW, and a silent LEAST FLYCATCHER, plus what seemed to me to be both territorial and sojourning AMERICAN REDSTARTS and RED-EYED VIREOS. Otherwise, throughout the sanctuary on both sides of the road, migrants seemed very sparse.
