While at Bald Point State Park yesterday afternoon (July 18th) from
around 3:30 to 4:00, I observed a surprising number of birds in the oaks
at the end of the pavement. Among the conspicuous Blue-gray
Gnatcatchers and chickadees, both very vocal, were several warblers: a
Yellow-throated, a Black-and-white, and at least 4 PRAIRIE WARBLERS. All
were actively feeding. There were also 2 juvenile Eastern Towhees, a
Downy Woodpecker, Red-bellied Woodpecker, titmice, and cardinals. I
assume the Prairies are fall migrants.
