Violet-green Swallow - Vischer Ferry

The Violet-green Swallow was along the towpath west of the Whipple Bridge at Vischer Ferry Preserve.  It was perched on a small tree along with some Northern Rough-winged Swallows.  I saw it approximately around 9:30 am.

Figured out that the traveling party the 4 Vesper Sparrows was with consisted of 20 Savannah Sparrows!


Vesper Sparrows - Halfmoon Town Park

I just found 4 Vesper Sparrows at the Halfmoon Town Park, and there may be more as their initial group broke apart. By the farm field, right near the trail.


Yellow-rumps at Pine Hollow Arboretum -Slingerlands

Cynthia Edwardson
 

Chris and I just walked the trails at Pine Hollow Arboretum in Slingerlands and observed a mini Yellow-rumped warbler wave there.  We counted at least 20, all Myrtle variety males, but there were likely more high in the trees as we saw lots of little birds moving.

to add to the finch-fest, we just had a group of over a dozen red crossbills drop into the yard for drink and bath at our ornamental pond. They have been doing that sporadically for many weeks now, although I was wondering if they had finally vacated as the last time here was 15 days ago.

Hey birders! I'm not going to say this Thursday looks spectacular, but it looks not-too-bad and it's worth a try. Let's meet at Saratoga Battlefield - the loop road is open - and see what's out there. We can check Wright's Loop after for shorebirds and the odd Ibis. See you at 8:00 in the parking lot.

I am once again saying I won't be joining you (medical appt) so have fun! See great birds!
