Bird Migration Radar, Aug. 22, 2015

Bird Migration Radar, Aug. 22, 2015

The bird migration radar looked promising at 5:45 this morning. One never knows where the birds will put down but migration traps are usually the best bet.


A Philadelphia Vireo and twelve warbler species were had at Chimney Rock (Jeff Ellerbusch, Simon Lane).


Nine warbler species were seen at Glenhurst Meadows as well as adult and juvenile Red-headed Woodpeckers (Chris Thomas).

30 Bobolinks were at The Tourne (Tim Vogel).


The feeders at home in Morris Township were half-filled this morning at 6:30  when this blogger went out for a morning walk. Upon returning at 9:45 AM, a look at the feeding station showed that birds weren’t the only creatures enjoying the black-oil sunflower seeds.

Squirrel-proof yes; bear-proof no.
