The terrible weather made for terrible birding for our Seven Hills Birdwatchers this morning at Berry College and Lavender Mtn. We had a total of 50 species, but only 7 warblers, 2 less than our group number:
*worm-eating warbler constructing its nest
*on Opossum trot, blue grosbeak, chats, three swallow species
*1 pair of tree swallows at the end of opossum trot suspiciuosly near a bluebird box.
*kestrel, savannah sparrows, and sharp-shinned hawk
*we did hear what could have been a Connecticut warbler on the mountain. but assuming would make one of me and you! There's too much assuming in birdwatching anyway. I had been cramming warbler songs the day before and concentrated on both mourning and conn. warbler. So who knows. The bird only called twice from the bottom of a ravine several 100 feet below. I do not know the natural history of this species enough to know when they should appear here in migration. No emails please.
