Olive-sided Flycatcher at the Bashakill Deli Fields 9/1/13

This morning Arlene Borko and I birded the Orchard/Stop Sign Trail, The Deli Fields and The Nature Trail. We had a total of 40 species. We ran into one large mixed species flock that had quite a few warblers and vireos. Though there were quite a few birds, diversity wasn’t very high and we only had five species of warbler. Chestnut-sided, Common Yellowthroat and Magnolia were pretty common. We only had a few Redstarts and Black and whites. Many Red-eyed Vireo easily out numbered the couple of Yellow-throated and Warbling Vireos we saw. There were quite a few empids and pewees. The bird of the morning for us a nice Olive-sided Flycatcher at the Deli Fields. He was flycatching from the large dead Sycamore near the Pine Kill. To get there, take the first road to the right at the first field on the right once you are in the Deli Fields. Go to the back and make a quick left and then right to the water. You can’t miss the tree. Last year this tree was especially good for Olive-sided and it appears it will be the case again this year.
