Bashakill jumping with birds this morning.

This morning, following a drs. appointment, I headed to the Bashakill. Lance Verderame had called me last night informing me that the radar was lit up with migrating birds.  I first stopped in the Pine Boat Launch. Before I made it half way in the road I had to stop just past the cabin.  There was a good mixed species flock just coming in from the swamp maples.  6 Black-throated Green Warblers, two TENNESSEE WARBLERS, Magnolia, Canada, a Cerulean and Black and White warblers were all present with Red-eyed and Yellow-throated Vireos. From there I went to the Orchard which was basically dead at the time.  I got a text from Scott Baldinger informing me the Nature Trail was jumping so I headed there. “JUMPING” it was!  Blackburnian, Chestnut-sided, Canada, Magnolia, Black-throated Blue and Green Warblers, American Redstart and Common Yellowthroat were all seen.  (I had over forty individual warblers this morning) Two YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHERS gave a nice show (Scott had three and we had another at the Deli Fields).  Eastern Phoebe and Pewee were also seen. With many of the more common species present, I ended the morning with 41 species! Not bad!
