Thanks Nancy - I spent a pleasant lunch break at the pavilion and shortly after 1pm did hear an Eastern Screech-owl call. There might have been a second distant bird, somewhere behind the Staats house.

Hi, All,


        We haven't
been to the Albany Pine Bush in some time and it's as
good a place as any to luck into migrant warblers, with
several recent reports of mixed waves along the Yellow
Trail. Meet at the Preserve Visitors' Center parking lot
at 8:00 a.m.
Remember that the Pine Bush has also reports of numerous
ticks so dress accordingly.

Had a great birding day at Carter's Pond with my sister today with 2 Magnolia Warblers, 1 Blue-winged Warbler, 1 Palm Warbler and great looks at a Common Gallinule and 6 Blue-winged Teal with post-ecliptic, bright feathers. What a day! It's nice to finally begin seeing some of the migrants passing through.

vischer ferry migrants - 9/9

gregg_recer
 

cathy graichen and I spent a couple of hours this morning covering parts of vischer ferry. John Hershey arrived just after we did, and so we spent part of the time birding with John too. On the main road we heard a harsh repeated call that john recognized as least bittern (confirmed later with similar calls on xeno-canto). The rest of the main road and wooded trails to the west were pretty quiet. Cathy and I eventually did come across a couple of small mixed migrant flocks including chestnut-sided, bay-breasted, magnolia, and black-throated green warblers; blue-gray gnatchatcher, rose-breasted grosbeak, and numerous eastern peewees were also present. Ebird checklist here:
