Singing male Cerulean Warbler at the Nature Trail
This morning, Arlene Borko, Danny Messina and I birded the Orchard/Stop Sign Trail and the Nature Trails. It was by far the best day this spring. We had a total of 67 species in four hours. The highlight of the morning was 17 species of warblers! FOS MAGNOLIA and WORM-EATING WARBLERS were the best of the day. Hooded, Cerulean, Chestnut-sided Warblers and Northern Parula were all seen. All of the common species were abundant. Three species of Vireo, both Orioles, Scarlet Tanager and Rose-breasted Grosbeak were all found. While we spent most of our time looking in the trees, a FOS GREAT EGRET was over the marsh and at least two Common Gallinule were heard.
Addendum: This afternoon, Arlene Borko and I went back to the Nature Trail to get her some birds she missed due to leaving early this morning. We got her three she missed and we both added FOS CANADA WARBLER.
