Team Pipit went for an extended walk on Ward Hill this morning and came
up with 12 species of warbler. Numbers were only modest, however, with
no big wave evident during my pre-breakfast walk. The results:
(7) Yellow-rumped Warbler, (7) Common Yellowthroat, (4) Black-throated
Green Warbler, (4) Black-throated Blue Warbler, (3) Nashville Warbler,
(3) Magnolia Warbler, (2) Chestnut-sided Warbler, (2) Blackpoll Warbler,
(1) Tennessee Warbler, (1) Northern Parula, (1) Bay-breasted Warbler,
and (1) Wilson's Warbler.
Other interesting sightings included: (6) Broad-winged Hawk, (2)
Pileated Woodpecker, (1) Ruffed Grouse and (1) Yellow-bellied
Flycatcher. Good numbers of White-throated Sparrows were in the field
early and about a dozen Dark-eyed Juncos were flitting about back in the
woods later in the morning.
