Migration Slowed

I birded the Bashakill, Yankee Lake and Kiamesha Lake today. Little was happening on the water, only one Common Loon seen on Kiamesha Lake. At the Bashakill, the TRUMPETER SWAN is now in its sixth day. Its nice to see more people coming to see this bird each day. The only real uptake in birds seemed to be in a few passerines. Eastern Towhees, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers and Ruby-crowned Kinglets have all increased or remain numerous. I think between traveling, my yard and the Bashakill I had about ten towhees today. Only three species of duck at the Bashakill for me today, including a few lingering Ring-necks. That was about it for the day.
