It was an amazing first day out birding since I returned home. It was like an endless flow of new year birds. I birded the Bashakill with Scott Baldinger this morning and Gumaer Falls and McDonald Roads this afternoon. I then returned to the Bashakill, finding more good birds and eventually being joined by Scott, Lance Verderame, Arlene Borko and Steve Altman. It was great afternoon. Highlights of the 28 new species I added for the year today were Sora, Cape May Warbler, Nashville Warblers, Eastern Kingbird, Woodthrush and Veery, Green Heron, Common Gallinule, Blue-headed, Yellow-throated and Warbling Vireos, Baltimore Oriole and many more. I hope tomorrow brings many more new birds!
