Karen Miller and I spent the morning birding the Bashakill. It was a cold, windy morning, but was quite productive. While most of the birds we saw today were birds we have been seeing, there were a couple of highlights. On Haven Road I initially found a WILSON’S SNIPE just off the road. As the next several minutes progressed, we found a total of nine Wilson’s. They were quite active and put on a nice show, including some nice photo ops. We called Scott Baldinger and Arlene Borko who both came over to join us. It was pretty neat and we spent nearly an hour there just enjoying seeing them forage. Anyone wanting to see the snipe should check by the bridge, along the channel out to the Beaver Lodge. They spent a lot of time right along the waters edge. The second highlight of the morning were 30 FOX SPARROWS at the Deli Fields. This was a single day high count for us and they were in two groups, one of ten and one of twenty. Duck highlights included Ring-necked, Northern Pintail, American Wigeon and Green-winged Teal. A fun morning.
