Most appreciated was the PRAIRIE WARBLER. It landed on the Butterfly Meadow fence. The bird was overshadowed by the dominant presence of three RED-TAILED HAWKS buzzing the airspace up there; at one point all three Redtailed dived sharply to a tree on the south slope.
The last region I went to was the Peninsula. There is where I saw 4 WARBLER species. In order: COMMON YELLOWTHROAT,AMERICAN REDSTART,BLACK WHITE WARBLER and NORTHERN WATERTHUSH, likely the same bird from the morning at the fork puddle. A last nice bird to see ,a GREEN HERON that perched briefly on a tree at the edge of the Peninsula cove.
The wind right now is east- southeast.I don't know how that will fare for Saturday which is supposed to be quite a nice day. Enjoy it.
