It is obvious that the first wave of migrants were here. Dominant species of Hermit Thrush, Myrtle Warbler males, Ruby-crowned Kinglet males, White-throated Sparrows, and the subdominants including Nashville Warbler and Western Palm Warbler. Both tanagers were heard with us lucky to catch a Scarlet Tanager male. Boy, did he glow!
One of the unusual birds was this quiz bird. It is unusual because it is a female. It was the first day for this species on the site and it happened to be a female.
Another highlight is the Great Crested Flycatcher—notice its great crest and it big mouth to catch insects.
Top six species:
White-throated Sparrow – 87
Myrtle Warbler – 84
Ruby-crowned Kinglet – 45
Hermit Thrush – 21
Chipping Sparrow – 9
Ovenbird – 7
Another big day planned for tomorrow if the winds would calm down a bit!
Enjoy!.....Quizbird is Tennessee Warbler-subdominant of the second wave.
