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.
