A large, low pressure system is still stuck over northern New England and Canada, and we are still experiencing fairly strong and cool, northerly winds. I suspect that many of the migrating birds are waiting for this system to move out to sea before moving north to their breeding grounds. After driving lots of miles the past few days and seeing only a few warblers, I decided to stay close to home.
I hiked a good distance here at home, and logged 30 avian species, including my FOS Great Crested Flycatcher, although I wasn't able to get a good photo of it.
Great Crested Flycatcher
I added four more species to my morning list on the Rockfish Valley Trail.
I sat out on our back deck for a while this afternoon, and added three more species to today's list: Yellow-rumped Warbler, Sharp-shinned Hawk, and Osprey.
