Sorry for posting a day late.... too busy birding. Bill and I
checked out the Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve yesterday
(Saturday) and found many of the usual residents including the
invisible Prairie Warblers, several Brown Thrashers, Northern
Waterthrush (near the entrance), Yellow-throated Vireo, and Least
Flycatcher. Only a few migrants--Cape May Warbler and Northern
Parula. I posted a full list on eBird.
The highlight was finally, after several decades, seeing my first
local Worm-eating Warbler. We first heard it singing from the purple
trail, near its junction with the red trail, on the steep hill that
goes up to Thatcher's Pinnacles, where Worm-eatings traditionally
breed. After about 1.5 hours, finally got literally a glimpse, but
that was a triumph. Also saw a Hooded Warbler along the purple
trail, where it usually breeds (could hear it from the RR tracks even).
And not one tick.
