Tuesday was pretty productive at the Bashakill again. I had my FOS LINCOLN’S SPARROW at the Horseshoe Parking Area and my FOS YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER on the Stop Sign Trail by the rock cut. I had been waiting for these two for some time. I still haven’t found a Yellow-billed Cuckoo and there have been no reports yet locally. Otherewise, things were about the same. Migrants have decreased over the last few days, but a few of just about everything can be found if one searches. There was a report of a Kentucky Warbler today on the entrance road to the Pine Boat Launch, but we were unable to relocate the bird. I found an interesting bird at Moosehead Cove yesterday. A male White-winged Scoter! (below) This isn’t a rare bird in May, but it is a rare bird in the Bashakill. This is only my second ever there and only the third ever reported in all my years of birding. Today, I headed back to Sterling Forest to try again for GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER! (above) I wasn’t disappointed! I had at least three and possibly four of these beautiful birds. I’m not sure if one of the birds is a female, or a Brewster’s Warbler. It doesn’t match any photos I’ve found of a Brewster’s and doesn’t match the ones we’ve had here in the county so far this year, but it seems to have a particularly yellow cap. Someone is likely to check out my ebird report and set the record staight. There were also lots of Blue-winged, Hooded, Black and White, Yellow, Chestnut-sided and Prairie Warblers there as well. A pair of Ceruleans was new for me at this spot. Nice birding!
