Friday Bird Notes, May 23, 2014

The final phase of spring migration is reflected in the species reported today.

The Tourne had Gray-cheeked and Swainson’s Thrushes (Julie Buechner).

Alder and Acadian Flycatchers are in the Great Swamp NWR (m.obs.). The Alder Flycatcher has been present all week along the southern end of the wilderness trail at the end of White Bridge Road. The Acadian Flycatcher is at the western end of White Bridge Road between White Bridge and the old Millridge Swim Club property. Yellow-billed Cuckoos are hard to miss in the proper habitat.

Warblers continue with 15 species at Chimney Rock this morning including Tennessee, Hooded Warbler, Magnolia, Blackburnian, Chestnut-sided, Blackpoll and Black-throated Blue and Black-throated Green Warblers (Jeff Ellerbusch).

Migrants were light at Troy Meadows this afternoon but a Linclon’s Sparrow put in an appearance in the woods beyond the trap shoot area (J. Klizas). Below is a very poor quality identification photo.
