Friday, July 26, just two weeks since our previous survey, while traversing
different terrain but similar habitat, the tally of species nearly halved
from 43 to 27. The diversity of warblers was also down from 14 to 6.
Black-throated green (14) were preeminent, followed by black-throated blue
(8) and yellow-rumped (6), ovenbird (2), black-and-white (1) and magnolia
(1). Other sightings of significance included a flock of frenetic feeding
golden-crowned kinglets (9), and a goodly number of vocal red-eyed vireos
(16). Barn swallows (2) were a first record, seen over a beaver dam.
Butterflies of interest included white admiral, great spangled fritillary,
aphrodite fritillary, eyed brown and northern pearly-eye.
Speaking the Same Language.
