On this overcast morning 16 members of the Ocmulgee Audubon visited Brown's Mount in Bibb County. A jaunt up to the high ridge and a decent back down provided us with a spattering of migrants. We were fortunate to have many noteworthy birds but most unfortunate to have very few good looks. Not all of the participants were able to see all 36 species we found. Warblers were again scarce with only 4 species seen. Pine, Chestnut-sided, Common Yellowthroat and Northern Waterthrush round out the lot. A Grey-cheeked Thrush, Veery, and 2 Swainson's Thrushes made appearances for the group as well as a female Baltimore Oriole. Both Scarlet and Summer Tanagers were seen today. One of the best birds was a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher. A true empid with a predominant yellow wash especially around the throat, contrasting wingbars, and a complete eyering suggest YBFL. The only other flycatcher observed was a couple of calling Eastern Wood-Pewees. We had a good assortment of woodpecker species today. Interesting was the large number of Red-headed woodpeckers flying about the dead pines and a Northern Flicker.
Overall the group fared well and in spite of unsatisfying looks on many of the birds I believe all had fun.
