Bashakill continues to please!

A Beautiful male Northern Parula


It was a cold and blustery morning at the Bashakill, but the birds still put on a show. I only managed 11 species of warblers, but I didn’t hit all of the good spots. I did find NASHVILLE WARBLER and NORTHERN PARULA,( both FOS) as well as Yellow, Common Yellowthroat, American Redstart, Black-throated Green, Cerulean, Black and White, Ovenbird and Northern Waterthrush. Baltimore Orioles were in good number and Solitary Sandpipers were seen in several spots. The highlight of a dark, cold morning was while I was at the Orchard. The sun suddenly came out for about twenty minutes, and a quiet morning suddenly came to life. The birds began to sing and feed on the apple blossoms, providing lots of entertainment. The three photos here today were all taken within a few minutes of each other, all in the same tree! Great morning!

If you look closely, you can actually see the rufous in the cap of this Nashville Warbler!


This beautiful male Baltimore Oriole was the third of the trio of birds feeding in this apple tree.
