No sign today of the Black Scoters, Redheads or Bonaparte's Gulls of
yesterday. However, a nice surprise today was a beautiful COMMON LOON on
the south pond, found by Darlene Moore. The shorebirds are about the same
as yesterday, with the addition of a few more LESSER YELLOWLEGS and 2
WESTERN SANDPIPERS. Kathy Miller had a GREAT EGRET there on Sunday, which
was the first sighting of the spring. It's possible that this bird
over-wintered somewhere on the property, since several stayed on the
Blalock Reservoir through January.
Migrants at the Wetlands Center so far are BLACK-THROATED GREEN WARBLER,
N. PARULA, BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER, LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH, BLUE-GRAY
GNATCATCHER, RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD, although I haven't checked the
trail yet today.
