Unlike last week, my birding was more limited this week, and coupled with less-than-conducive weather for migrants on most days, my observations of note were few.
- ~50 Palm Warblers, ~25 Yellow-rumped Warblers, and 2 Pine Warblers, Florida Lake, Freeport, 4/16 (with Saturday Morning Birdwalk group).
- 2 female BARROW’S GOLDENEYES, Eastern Road Trail, Scarborough Marsh, 4/17 (with Jeannette).
- 7 Gadwall, Pelreco Marsh, Scarborough Marsh, 4/17 (with Jeannette).
- 1 Fish Crow, Florida Lake Park, Freeport, 4/20 (my 168th species here!)
And my list of personal “first of years” and other new arrivals also showed the reduced time in the field and only one good night of migration this week:
- 78 Glossy Ibis, Scarborough Marsh, 4/17 (with Jeannette)
- 2 Lesser Yellowlegs, Scarborough Marsh, 4/17 (with Jeannette).
- 1 LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH, Morgan Meadow WMA, 4/21.
I hope to see you all on Monday when Jeannette and I will be presenting a program on Birding in Cuba for Merrymeeting Audubon at the Curtis Library in Brunswick at 7:00pm.
And don’t forget, next weekend is Feathers Over Freeport!
