On Dennis' regular Saturday walk,it was the case of Three Sisters providing the best numbers for warblers this morning. Though I didn't get all the species names when i swung by, members of the group dropped hints of Cape May and Yellow Rumped Warblers. I was lucky when I ran into Ed,Ryan and Angie stationed opposite the three islands, getting close looks of a NORTHERN PARULA in the tree next to us across from the islands.A BELTED KINGFISHER flew out of the islands strait and perched on a limb on the western island. I heard also that a NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH walked under the tree earlier. Dennis will hopefully produce a report later.
The rest of the morning went quiet even as we circled the lake towards the rink green roof. A nice pickup after Dennis tweeted it, a SOLITARY SANDPIPER on the black plastic covering at the lake edge across from the Well house Drive three shipping containers.
A northwest wind prevails tonight, a real cold snapper with temps dipping into the the low 50's. Could more birds come ?
