While birding maintained a distinctive fall flavor this week, there was little of excitement to report. Birds were typical of the season with Yellow-rumped and Palm Warblers dominating the warbler scene. Sparrows made a slight increase this week, but no real notables were seen. The highlight has been two Lincoln’s Sparrows at the Deli Fields, one most recently seen this afternoon. Waterfowl has begun a slight increase with Canada Geese, Mallards, Black Ducks and Wood Ducks on the increase. Among them, an occasional Green-winged Teal and Pied-billed Grebe. A duo of Greater Yellowlegs passed through the Bashakill this morning searching for a place to put down. With waters still extremely high, they eventually continued on. Up county has produced nothing recently. I’m really hoping for a good sparrow movement in the near future. Wish there was more to report.
