Despite the late season and change in weather,
nine observers tallied 36 species at the Tinmouth
Channel WMA today, including six new species for
the area since the survey began in April.
Highlights included alder flycatcher, great
crested flycatcher, swamp sparrow, eastern
wood-pewee, blue-headed vireo, red-eyed vireo,
hermit thrush, and large numbers of cedar
waxwings and black-capped chickadees. Also, an
unidentified raptor - a red-shouldered hawk was
considered because of call and nearby nest.
Warblers included: common yellowthroat, American
redstart, yellow-rumped warbler, chestnut-sided
warbler, ovenbird, Nashville warbler, Canada
warbler, and black-throated blue warbler.
