Bashakill – a good morning!

My first Lincoln's Sparrows of the year in the county were at the Deli Fields near the Pine Kill this morning.

I birded the Bashakill with Bob and Mary Wexler this morning. We started at the Deli Fields where there was a good movement of birds. Highlights here include my county FOY LINCOLN’S SPARROW, Philadelphia Vireo, Blue-headed Vireo, Brown Thrasher and many Palm Warblers. Also present were 15 Northern Flicker, Eastern Bluebirds, Phoebes, Scarlet Tanager, Eastern Pewee, Cedar Waxwings, Song and Field Sparrows. From there we headed to the Nature Trail. Things were somewhat quiet here but a Northern Parula, American Redstart and Hooded Warbler, all gorgeous males, were seen. On the marsh, Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons, Northern Harriers and Bald Eagles were all seen. Really nice morning of birding!
