Hi Peter,

We had another record-sized group with lots of new faces. That's always great to see.
The park was much slower than Tuesday (as will almost all days in the future be...) but we still had 16 species of warblers and several other good birds including 10 or so spotted sandpipers, a least sandpiper and a black-billed cuckoo.

Here's the list.
And thanks very much for your help with the glue-stickers. We flagged down a park ranger and showed them pictures of the guys. Another walk member had tracked them and could point out their direction and had other pictures.
Let me know what ultimately happened with them.
I did try and keep the people with binoculars out of their field of view. I don't want to encourage any revenge on the birders..


Best regards,
Tom

Hi Peter,

Well today was the day we wait for and dream about all year!!!  Hatchouts everywhere - the birds were dripping from the trees, singing all day, often at eye-level.  Couldn't ask for more!  21 warbler species and we didn't even get the Cerulean, Worm-eating or Cape May!   

Here's hoping for more tomorrow!

Hi Peter,

Hope you're having a great Spring.

Although we've been having NW winds, the park still had a good number of birds, many piled up at the North end waiting to get the heck out of town...

We had a good group with lots of new people and 76 species of birds. Highlights included Bank Swallow, 16 species of warblers, Purple Finch, 2 Indigo Buntings, Orchard Oriole and a lot more.

Here's the list.

Peter,

20 birders worked as a team and found 80 species yesterday. I think one of the highlights for me was the time we spent seeing and hearing a WEWA foraging and singing at a distance of about five feet at eye level for several minutes. 

The real highlight though was suddenly realizing what great birders my regulars have become over these past three years by learning from and challenging each other. Giving back is where the real birding treasures are found not lists and rarities.

Peter:

Here is the list of the birds recorded today on the BBC walk.  We really had a great time.  By the time we started, around 24 birdwatchers were present.  By 1220 hrs, I called for go home.

Our 2 best ones were a male Hooded Warbler, seen behind the Upper Pool.  Later we had the tweet of the Cerulean observed in the early hours at Lookout Hill, spotted by Ed Crowne.  Later Ed joined us, and we were very lucky, thanks to Ed, to relocated this beautiful male warbler.  All the participants at this point, saw it, and heard his voice.

Attached are some pics taken of the participants looking at the CEWA.

Have a great day:
