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:

Blue-winged
Golden-winged
Nashville
Northern Parula
Yellow
Chestnut-sided
Magnolia
Black-throated Blue
Black-throated Green
Pine
Palm
Black and White
American Redstart
Ovenbird
Northern Waterthrush
Louisiana Waterthrush
Common Yellowthroat
Wilson’s
Canada

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.
