Hey Birders,


There was a slight increase in birds throughout the island today. Highlights included a reported Prothonotary Warbler from Lighthouse Point. There was also a White-eyed Vireo there last evening. A first generation male Brewster's Warbler was seen along Lorraine Lane (Mill Point) along with a Yellow-throated Vireo around lunchtime. Both Black-billed and Yellow-billed Cuckoo's were seen today. About 120 species in total were seen on the island, including 19 species of warblers.


Whip-poor Will's are regularly being heard from the Municipal Campground and along the East-West Road between the lake and Stone Road. 
Good Birding,
Ken Burrell
