Bashakill WMA and Linear Park

Another great day of birding in Sullivan County. While overall numbers continued to be down, overall diversity was good. I managed 91 species again today in just five and a half hours of birding. Highlights today included first of the season GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER, SWAINSON’S THRUSH and ORCHARD ORIOLES. Wilson’s and Nashville warblers continue to be in good numbers, though a little down from the past two days. Here is a list of warblers seen today:

Northern Parula
Black-throated Blue
Black-throated Green
Black and White
American Redstart
Northern Waterthrush
Louisiana Waterthrush
Common Yellowthroat

In addition to these, Scott Baldinger, who was out ealier today, had Worm-eating, Bay-breasted and Cerulean Warblers. Also reported by others were Blackburnian Warblers, which I just could’nt connect with. Many field trips are taking place tomorrow, including the “Peak of Migration” trip for the Bashakill Association which I will be leading at 8 AM at the Orchard Parking Lot. The forecast looks good and many birds should be seen.
