Because of early morning fog, a heads up on the radar from C. Roberto, and the delay in migration I’ve been hearing about, I headed to the CPP nature center early this morning. It‘s just off the river with a good mix of trees including many oaks and in the past fog has yielded some nice drop-ins. Joined by K Lamb we were treated (distanced) to 14 species of wood warblers (many migrants) including multiples of Bay Breasted, Canada, Magnolia, Blackpoll, Chestnut sided, BTGW, and Black and white. Also a Blackburnian and a BTBW. Also a good mix of other species.
There are also bobolinks on the main and secondary landfills (less it seems than when they first arrived earlier this month because injudicious and indiscriminate mowing practices), and grasshopper sparrow has been seen and heard. Finally, I was lucky enough a few days ago to have the first reported sighting at CPP of yellow crowned night heron in 20+ years (and the first recorded on ebird from the park). L.
