Sullivan, around the county


Yesterday, I birded the northeastern portion of the county hoping for something good like a Ruffed Grouse or Pine Siskins.  I didn’t find either of those birds, but I had a nice morning.  A stop at Sue Rayano’s feeders was productive with at least a dozen Purple Finches and several Rose-breasted Grosbeaks feeding.   Cooley Bog and Fir Brook provided many White-throated Sparrows and Dark-eyed Juncos as well as a Golden-crowned Kinglet.  Today, I birded part of the Neversink River with nothing of real note except ongoing Belted Kingfishers.  Finally reaching the Deli Fields at the Bashakill, I was pleased to find that the Orchard Orioles have fledged at least two chicks (maybe more).  I had good but quick looks at two chicks and the adult female with the first summer male. Good birding for early summer days.
