Nice Morning at the Bashakill

IMG_9499

Following several days that included heavy rain at times and high winds, it was a beautiful morning at the Bashakill.  One side effect of the storm is the extremely high water.  It has displaced the dabbling ducks and few were seen.  The bird of the morning was a flock of 30 Brant that flew over Haven Road shortly after 10 am.  For a change, there was actually some decent passerine movement after nearly a week of little activity.  Highlights of the morning included 6 Rusty Blackbirds, 11 Yellow-rumped Warblers, many Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets, Robins, Hermit Thrush, 1 Eastern Towhee, five species of sparrows and many Dark-eyed Junco.  Two Eastern Phoebes continue as well. I had a total of 33 species, my highest is some time!
