Bashakill and Linear Park

Cerulean Warblers are in in good numbers at the Bashakill.  At least two pair and two additional males are present.

Many new species came into the Bashakill overnight. There has still been no major influx, all species are in relatively low numbers. FOS species for me today were WOOD THRUSH at both the Nature Trail and Stop Sign Trail. GREAT-CRESTED FLYCATCHER at the Stop Sign Trail. SWAINSON’S THRUSH and WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW at the Nature Trail. Other birds of note were four CERULEAN WARBLERS, none of which were the pair at the Horseshoe Parking area. All of the other recently reported warblers were seen today as well. Over at Linear Park, birds were very active as well. Highlights here were my FOS BLUE-WINGED WARBLER and RED-EYED VIREO. A Brown Thrasher was my first in about a week. Rose-breasted Grosbeak and Baltimore Oriole were common at both Linear Park and the Bashakill.
The shallow pools at the Boardwalk at the Nature Trail have been attracting Wood Thrush, Cerulean Warblers and a number of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks over the last few days.  Be sure to stop and watch a few minutes when you visit.

    Lucky you! I looked for the Blue winged on Sunday but perhaps too late in the day – got a nice photo of a yellow warbler there and we observed a boat load of white throated sparrows that positively made the leaves move on the trail on Mac Donald Rd – Linear Park.
