Birding involved many females of species and some later migrants but has been steady thus far. At the Tip this morning, birders found SANDERLING, RUDDY TURNSTONE, LESSER-BLACK-BACKED GULL and a LITTLE GULL.

An ACADIAN FLYCATCHER was seen at the south end of the Sparrow Field, along the beach.

An OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER was noted again on the south end of Redbud Trail. RED-HEADED WOODPECKER and PROTHONOTARY WARBLER were seen on Woodland Trail near bridge F. Other of the latter species were noted between bridge A and C. Good numbers of SCARLET TANAGERS were observed between posts 4 to 7 on the Woodland trail as well.

A MOURNING WARBLER was continuing to sing near the south end of the east seasonal trail in Tilden Woods Trail. On that seasonal trail a couple of YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHERS were noted.

A YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT was found in the cactus field and people are attempting to relocate it now.

Good Birding,
