One of three Nashville Warlbers at the Deli Fields!

This morning, Mary Busky and I spent an enjoyable morning birding the Bashakill.  I had found little activity at my first three stops, so I headed to the Deli Fields where Mary joined me shortly thereafter.  It was very productive morning with lots of warbler and sparrow activity.  As the morning progressed, we were joined by Maha Katnani, Aimee LaBarr and Scott Baldinger.  We ended the morning with 48 species.  Highlights included 3 Nashville Warbler, 3 Tennessee Warbler, 3 Blackpoll Warbler, 2 Black-throated Green and 8 Palm Warbler.  A single Northern Parula was also among them.  1 Blue-headed Vireo was seen as well.  On the sparrow side, dozens of Chipping Sparrows, a dozen White-throated Sparrow, ten Song Sparrow and one Lincoln’s Sparrow were seen.  Eastern Bluebird and Phoebes, Cedar Waxwing, House Wren, Mute Swan, Ring-necked Pheasant, Cooper’s and Red-shouldered Hawks, Merlin and American Kestrel made for a nice list.  Blue Jays were again migrating in mass.   It was a really enjoyable morning!
