Craig Area Birds
Did some cold weather birding around Craig this morning and there was still a little steam left in migration. At Loudy-Simpson Park were five warblers species: Yellow-rumped (80), Orange-crowned (30), Townsend’s (3), Wilson’s (2) and a latish Common Yellowthroat (1). Other species included RC Kinglet (50), Hermit Thrush (2), Brown Creeper (2), White-crowned Sparrow (5) and a few resident species.
At the County Maintenance Shop Pond were 12 LB Dowitchers, two Greater Yellowlegs, some pelicans and cormorants and common ducks.

Had three (1 adult, 2 juveniles) late lingering Bonaparte’s Gulls at Loudy-Simpson Park last evening, as well as a Willet at WFMC Ponds south of Craig. Otherwise, not much new for passerine migration.
