Sullivan County Good Morning

This morning I headed back to my CBC area to see if I could find some of the birds I had had on my count that I don’t yet have for the year.  I really only missed one bird and I picked up four that I didn’t even have on the count.  The highlights were:  EASTERN TOWHEE!   This bird eluded me for the entire count week in spite of the fact I knew it was present.  This is the first I’ve seen it again.  Belted Kingfisher, Purple Finch, Red-breasted Nuthatch.  I also had Golden-crowned Kinglets in a couple of spots. It appears the Alewives are no longer running as the number of eagles, gulls and mergansers was down from the count.  From that area, I worked my way up to Beechwoods.  Along the way I had a Red-shouldered Hawk and a couple of dozen Brown-headed Cowbirds on Dr. Duggan Road.  Seven new county birds, five of which were new for the state for the year.
