Prospect Reports:

From Bobbi Manian

Hi Peter and Rob,

Today was the final Tuesday migration walk. All of the regulars from our merry band were in attendance.

Here is today's list. Of note:

over 20 Blackpolls, mostly female, signifying end of migration :-(
Northern Harrier flyover on Lookout
Good looks at female Prairie, not seen for a week or so, on side of Lookout at a termite hatchout
Good looks at a female RB Grosbeak - also on side of Lookout
2Common Loons flyover - also on Lookout
Emily heard and saw Willow Flycatcher and brought the group back for good looks (also on Lookout - do you sense a theme?)
Rob pre-spotted a grey-cheek on Penna yesterday and made sure entire group got on it today

Rob - Thanks so much for your generous time this spring! The Tuesday walks have been a highlight of migration!

You are seeing warblers? I hope so. Here are a few birds from Robs last spring walk of the season.

Summer came all at once today and by the time I got to the park this evening all the migrants were gone. Still, the green herons are hanging in there even though the Nethermead is trashed.
