Today I finally got a flurry of warbler activity at the
dripper. The birds were lined up waiting to bathe
and they did some serious bathing, some of them
staying and sort of lounging almost submerged in
the water. It was a fun 20 minutes.
There were Black-throated Green, Blackburnian,
Magnolia, Chestnut-sided, Black and White.
Recently had trees full of Redstarts and the Pine
Warblers are calling along with Yellowthroated
So my neighbor and I decided to check out Lickskillet
Circle again. And it was worth our while.
More Orchard Orioles, Scarlet Tanagers, numerous
Blue-headed vireos all in one tree, and in a small
coastal plain willow were more of the same warblers
seen earlier in my yard.
Further along on Old SR2 we found a little flock of
Palm warblers on the fences - my FOS.
Three days ago my husband watched the nighthawks
circling over the pasture just before dusk.
Two nights in a row there have been Canada geese
flying fairly high in a southerly direction calling.
One week ago we checked out the Fannin County
Park off SR5 and had a Waterthrush sp.
Yesterday a small dark wren flew across the road
almost running on the ground. I'm fairly certain it was
a winter wren and that would be an early date for me.
I'm glad the activity picked up here for I was envious of
all the migration elsewhere.
