Nine Warbler Morning

Had a nice walk at Peace Valley this morning, and picked up nine warbler species, as well as FOS Eastern Kingbird and Great Crested Flycatcher and Swainson's Thrush. Most of the warblers were silent, so it took a lot of looking up into the bright new oak leaves to find them.

Ended up with 52 species in two hours, not too shabby for here.

Birding is Fun! said...

Glad to see you faithfully using eBird! Meanwhile, we here in Idaho have Warbler-envy enjoying just a few Warbler varieties like Yellow, Orange-crowned, Nashville, Yellow-rumped, occasional Townsend's and rare Hermits. Nothing like the south and east coast though.

We are getting a group together for a Memorial Day weekend birding day at Camas NWR in eastern Idaho where rare migrating warblers are often found. Please send some of yours our way...a Blackburnian please!

I used to work on the eBird team representing Audubon in the partnership. I love eBird!

Be happy to send some Eastern warblers to the vagrant trap of your choice in Idaho. I'm going to be out that way visiting family in Cache Valley and Pocatello, possibly even later this month. Maybe I can bring one with me :-)

Congrats, sounds like a great morning! I had a 4 Warbler, 1 Vireo morning. :)

I use eBird for reporting, but also Avisys for my permanent personal record...

Has anyone written anything about the habitat implications of the continuing spill crisis in the Gulf of Mexico?

I found a bird feather and wonder what type of bird it is from. Can you help? The photo is at
