Bashakill Sunday Morning

A female Hooded Warbler on the Nature Trail

A female Hooded Warbler on the Nature Trail


Though I was a bit tired out this morning, Arlene Borko and I headed out to the Bashakill to see what had come in. There were lots of birders around, and it was quite birdy. The bird family of the day had to be the flycatchers. We had our FOS OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCEHER perched in the usual tree on the Stop Sign Trail. Eastern Wood-pewee, Eastern Phoebe, Eastern Kingbird, Willow, Least, Great Crested and Alder Flycatchers were all seen and heard! Warbler numbers were down somewhat. A nice find for me was a female Hooded Warbler. I seldom see females, and its rare for me to get a shot of one. Just a few short walks and I was done for the day.
