Prothonotary Warbler and Fox Sparrow
- While walking on the trail from the Park Bench Cafe to the red
flowering tree behind Shipley, a nice group of birders pointed out to
me a Fox Sparrow, digging in and around a hedge. That was at the fork
in the trail where you can either go behind Shipleys or go to the
right towards Shipleys front gate. There's a triangle piece of ground
with a hedge around it. It was in there as were some White-crowned
Sparrows. Continuing down the path after that a few people had the
Prothonotary in the red flowering euc. As we watched it dropped down
to a lower branch, saving our necks some stress, and then actually
flew accross the path into a sycamore to our left. It gave us some
really good low level looks as it flitted from right to left across
the sycamore. Finally it flew out of the tree towards the Shipley
fence and we lost it. Hope it comes back for some more looks.
All of this was between 9 and 10 am.
