Migrants have again started to find their way to the oak, beech and poplar canopy of our yard. Not alot of action yet, but today we had CAPE MAY, YELLOW, HOODED, BLACKPOLL, PALM, WORM-EATING, PINE and YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS. Also WHITE-EYED and RED-EYED VIREOS and WOOD THRUSH. PRAIRIE WARBLERS came through a few days ago. We still have WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS and RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS. RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRDS are on the flowers and feeders almost constantly, except when they're chasing each other. Jeff has heard LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH and ACADIAN FLYCATCHER across the street. I counted 37 species here today. This is the week (4/29) that we had a Black-billed Cuckoo close to our deck in 2002. Unfortunately, we don't seem to have any tent caterpillars in the trees this year so far, which is what attracted the other one.
I've been sidelined at home for two days with some bronchial thing, and so know nothing of what's happening at Huie or the Wetlands Center in Clayton Co. If anyone has been there this week, I'd appreciate news of anything interesting.
