Another week of relative calm.


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.
