Today, from 5:30am to 6:30am, I did not encounter any transient migrants in
the Hawthorn Orchard. It could have been that I was just there too early,
but I certainly suspect that all have picked up and migrated North with the
Southerly winds we've been having. The only potential transient migrant
Chris and Jessie's Sedge Wren was still in the same area on Hile School Road
this morning but very uncooperative. I only heard a few chips and one half
song. Lots of Alder Flycatchers were in this area, as well as Blue-winged
Warbler and Nashville Warbler. I heard some very odd loud
Another FOS yardbird today--Eastern Wood Pewee. Was around past couple of years
as well. Watched it drop out of the pear tree and catch insects just above the
grass, then resume it's perch in the tree and sing both songs (that I'm
familiar with, anyway) before flying off. Usually hear it
No shortage of Field Sparrows here either.

I am wondering if anybody on the listserve is consistently hearing a singing
(cu-cu-cu) Black-billed Cuckoo in our area. I would like to try to get a
high-quality recording of this vocalization from this species to add to the

A short listen to the chorus at the Salmon Creek FLLT preserve this
morning revealed the usual breeding species, and no migrants- and no
Ceruleans, as has sadly been the case for several years now. I did not
hear Acadian Flycatcher, but did not go up the side ravines.
This morning at Park Preserve there was no shortage of Field Sparrows. I hadn't
been there this year and the new trails really extend the fun.
