Mourning Warbler at Troy Meadows
A singing Mourning Warbler was found near the trap shoot area of Troy Meadows Road at Troy Meadows this morning by Chris Thomas. Whether this is the same individual that was seen on Wednesday is anyone’s guess. Also reported are 2 Swainson’s Thrushes, 3 Northern Waterthrushes, Chestnut-sided and 5 Blackpoll Warblers. The Mourning Warbler was not relocated in the afternoon by several birders.
The Yellow-breasted Chat of Lord Stirling Park is not reported during the week although could still be in the area of Bullfrog Pond.
The end is near for Spring Migration 2015, but a prolonged movement this year should continue through the holiday weekend. Sunday and Monday mornings have southerly winds forecast. The Birdcast forecast for May 22-29 is here.
