I went to the Youth Camp each morning 9/24-26.
I saw Jim Cavanaugh's odd BH Nuthatch on Tues and today. Got a pic on Tuesday that I will share when I get to my own PC next week.
Today, a small flock of cuckoos came in. One had an all-dark bill and all dark wings--i.e. no rufous on primaries.
None of the cuckoos were vocal, and they did not respond to recordings of either species. No picture.
Other highlights of the 3 days:
12 Warblers: Wilson's, Pine, Palm, Yellow, Yellow throated, Prothonotary, Prairie, Magnolia, Redstart, Black & White, Yellow rump, Tennessee
Vireos: Red eyed, lots of them
Thrushes: Veery, Swainson's; Gray cheeked/Bicknell's--it wasn't vocal)
Falcons: Merlin on Tuesday, Peregrine today
BH Nuthatch: two in usual plumage, one with the white patch on the primaries
Flycatchers: Pewee, non-vocal empid with tear drop shaped eye-ring and buffy wing bars
