I jaunted out to Brown's Mount and Bond Swamp NWR to look for neotropic migrants with Ivelisse and Joy Brown. Up on the mount we heard and saw several dozen Blue-gray Gnatcatchers and Black-and-white Warblers. We also came across a fair amount of White-eyed Vireos. At the overlook we observed at least two FOY Chimney Swifts. Has anyone else seen these guys yet this year? Other than that we didn't find anything too unusual.
We had a much better turn out at Bond Swamp (Stone Creek Trail). We tallied 7 warbler species including FOY Louisiana Waterthrush (2) in full song. Other warbler species include Yellow-rumped, Orange-crowned, (Western) Palm, Common Yellowthroat, Northen Parula, and Pine Warbler. We failed to see but heard a couple of Yellow-throated Vireos. Also FOY.
I did gain a lifer........butterfly. A Gemmed Satyr. Sorry folks no camera to document my lifer.
Hope you all had a good birding day. Can't wait to see what shows up after the storm today and tomorrow.
