Hey Birders,
Another warm sunny day....well not quite, actually kind of cool and wet, but it'll be warming up, with winds coming from the south shortly, bringing the next wave of birds. Nothing really new today, but still some decent birds around.
Here are the highlights....
Acadian Flycatcher - 2 birds at Fish Point in the banding area
Louisiana Waterthrush - 1 bird at Fish Point
Prothonotary Warbler - same birds in the swamp at Fish Point still present
Lesser Black-backed Gull - 2 first-year birds at Fish Point and 1 in the fields near Scudder
Herring X Great Black-backed Gull - 1 sub adult seen early this am before taking off
Number of species seen on the island since April 25th: 218
Good Birding,
Ken Burrell
