Dennis Hrehowsik tweeted in the WORM-EATING WARBLER report in the Lullwater mid center on the west side 1/2 way past the Lullwater Cove towards the Terrace Bridge. This warbler prefers slopes for its liking.John Ascher and Will ? also observed this uncommon spring bird.
Other quality birds were BROWN THRASHER in the Peninsula ( Dennis), and my RUSTY BLACKBIRD seen working the shores of the Ambergill Creek after the Lower Pool water exits, just before the Esdale Bridge. This bird was reported earlier by Chris Elliot.
I spotted 5 Woodpecker species today Flicker, Red bellied, Downy, Hairy and Yellow-bellied Saspucker. Add WINTER WREN and BLUE GRAY GNATCATCHER on the trail west of the Lullwater Bridge.
