Vireo

Blue Headed Vireo.

Overcast, breezy, and chilly this morning when dog and I started up the open trail. Birds were about—more than in recent days—and clearly many looked to be migrants.

Notable was the dearth of species in the wooded trails until we happened upon a little gathering of vocal chickadees. Sure enough, in the leafy canopy above them, flitted nice selection of species—vireos, titmice, nuthatches. Heard flicker and Pileated Woodpecker. A blue-headed vireo even posed for a photo.

Rain tonight, clearing tomorrow. Soon the fun begins.

Mini Fallout

The forecast rain didn’t arrive, and the fog at the beginning of my hike with dog vanished within about twenty minutes, but still I didn’t list too many bird species this morning. However, toward the end of this daily excursion of ours, we encountered another little mini fallout.

Today’s warbler species included redstart, yellow-rump, parula, and chestnut-sided. Chickadees and a vireo were a part of this antic collection of little flitting birds.

I love this time of year.

Warblers on the Move

Wednesday, September 13th, 2023

Chestnut-sided Warbler (non-breeding male).

Another wet one. Rain early, fog and overcast. And another day—third day?—of migrating birds flitting through the wooded canopy.

Many were warblers: redstart, yellow, black-and-white, yellowthroat. Most were quiet and required an eagle eye to ID. Only one posed for a photo, a Chestnut-sided Warbler.

More rain and sun to come—and the remnants of a hurricane this weekend.
