Bashakill WMA significant influx of birds!

While I wouldn’t go as far as calling it a fallout last night, there was a significant influx of birds that came in. Arlene Borko, Karen Miller and I birded the Bashakill this morning, joined for a while by Scott Baldinger, Herb Stein Gerhard Patch and Bob Senertia. We birded all the major locations and Karen and I never finished up until 3PM! There were so many first of the season birds it was hard to keep track of them. We had a total of 13 species of warblers highlighted by Prairie, Magnolia, Black-throated Blues and Greens, Northern Parula and Amerian Redstarts! Catbirds, Towhees, Vireos and more. FOS American Bittern was on Haven Road calling. We ended our day with 65 species and there were another 6 species we heard about but never saw. Surprisingly, Rose-breasted Grosbeak and Baltimore Oriole were among them. Tomorrow is my annual “Bashakill Spring Warbler Walk” and it looks like its going to be a good one!
