The number of warblers was pretty good as I saw at least two dozen species. Added Blackpoll, Mourning and a very brief look at a Kentucky today.
Lots of Yellow-rumped are still around and American Redstarts made up for the bulk of warblers.
It is a good year for Hooded Warblers as today a few were around the park. We heard one on spicebush trail, then looking for a male Hooded on tulip tree trail that one fellow just photographed, we came across an active female.
Sorting through many Swainson's Thrushes I finally got a look at a Gray-Cheeked today for the year.
A few Scarlet Tangers brightened up the day.
Over at Blenheim Lagoons, a good number of shorebirds were in. The ever-numerous Dunlins stole the show. Interestingly I did not see a Wilson's Phalarope. There have been up to 8 recently.
Here are some shorebirds from today.
With the day not done, I bypassed Erieau and headed over to Hillman. The only different shorebird was a Short-billed Dowitcher for the day. But, shorebirds were coming and going all the time. There was a nice selection of duck including at least 7 species.
I ended the day with 131 species without a lot of effort and checking other spots for different species.
The next couple of days look promising for more birds.
