Another good day at the Bashakill!


I spent the morning birding the Bashakill with Scott Baldinger and my friends visiting from Florida, Bob and Mary Wexler.  It was our second really good day in a row.  Though I only had nine species of warblers today, the numbers were actually up from yesterday.  Highlights of the morning included  a beautiful juvenile Peregrine Falcon (above) perched in the dead tree in the back bay from the Pine Boat Launch Tower, eight Great Egrets with four Great Blue Herons, also at the Pine Boat Launch, and the list of warblers.  Black-throated Green, Chestnut-sided, Magnolia, Black and White and Pine Warblers, Northern Parula, American Redstart, Common Yellowthroat and Ovenbird. The only Vireos this morning for me were Red-eyed and Yellow-throated. Pewees and Phoebes were plentiful. Bald Eagles and Osprey were my only other raptors. I believe the other birders had some additional species before we met up. Good birding!
