A report on TODAY'S birds from ED GAILLARD via NYSbirds:
The Ramble was very busy during my stroll this morning (9 to 10am):
Several Goldfinches and Catbirds at Maintenance along with one each of
Magnolia Warbler, Black-and-White Warbler, Downy Woodpecker, and
Swainson's Thrush. An Ovenbird on the path from the Gill source down
to Evodia. Another Downy at Evodia, and a Hermit Thrush.
At Tupelo, Blue-headed Vireo, Blackpoll, Palm Warbler, several
Yellow-Rumped Warblers, Magnolia Warbler, Phoebe, Pewee, Ruby-Crowned
Kinglet, Titmouse, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Towhee. Also Field and
Song Sparrows, and a glimpse of a very streaky sparrow that I think
was a Lincoln's. All the sparrows seemed to like a mud puddle just
outside the fence east of the big tree.
Plus the usual ubiquitous White-Throated and House Sparrows, Blue
Jays, Robins, and a large number of Mallards in the Upper Lobe.
