Subject: warblers + the big migrants
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"
The Robin Train brought in a yard full of migrants this morning - including
the big guys like Scarlet Tanager and Rose-breasted Grosbeak. We hadn't
been checking the front yard full of dogwoods that gets morning sun and
things were hopping. Warblers were all over our backyard. And afternoons in
the late sun are best for warblers so tonight should be interesting.
Here's a list:
Scarlet tanagers - 7 males (3 around the bird bath)
Rose-breasted grosbeaks - 4 females
Thrush sp. - 1
Gray catbird - 3
Black and White warbler - NEW
Blackburnian warblers - unusual sp. for our yard
Tennessee warblers - everywhere - I had 9 warblers on one tree in front of
me and 8 were Tennessee's
Black-throated green warblers
A flicker, mockingbirds, brown thrashers, and a small flock of starlings
were all getting in on the action. Plus lots of robins.
