Bald Pt. / 14 Oct 04 (Belated Report)
- FOTS birds in yard: HERMIT THRUSH and BAY-BREASTED WARBLER.
In the Park I met with Richard White and family from Chatooga Co. GA. They
had just seen (2) SCISSOR-TAILED FLYCATCHERS (reported here yesterday), and
an adult male VERMILION FLYCATCHER. We couldn't relocate the birds. I
imagine they retired for the evening. We did see a F/imm. BALTIMORE ORIOLE
that was flitting about nervously, perhaps exhibiting "zugunruhe",
Alligator Pt., FL
- Good morning all,
Early this morning we had two Rose Breasted Grosbeaks at the sunflower seed feeders. They appeared to be a male and female. A male had been through the yard earlier in the week without stopping. Less welcome new feeder birds this week include a pair of brown-headed cowbirds. They have come in almost every morning.
This yard does not seem to be a warbler stop, but it has a large local bird community. They are eating heartily! A brown thrasher has even been known to check out the platform feeder every so often.
