Highlights for the day were the first Black-billed Cuckoo for the season, 3 species of Empidonax flycatchers (Least, Yellow-bellied, Traill’s), Kentucky (female), my first Wilson’s of the year!, Hooded (female), male Mourning—I heard there were many on the Magee Boardwalk, and a female Scarlet Tanager.
Female Scarlet Tanager has a green yellow color versus the female Summer Tanager is a golden yellow coloration. The definitive way to tell is to look at the under wing lining color or axillary color---for Scarlet it is white or gray and the Summer female axillaries are yellow.
Top 8 species for the day:
Magnolia Warbler - 52
Gray Catbird - 43
American Redstart - 28
Yellow Warbler - 26
Chestnut-sided Warbler - 12
Common Yellowthroat - 11
Black-throated Blue Warbler - 9
Ovenbird - 9
So as you can see it is a great time to get outside and enjoy Spring!
