Quick Secret

I found a “secret” place this afternoon while taking a bicycle ride around the neighborhood. A pseudo-abandoned piece of land that has potential for future birding. A quick scout through some of it yielded FOY Chimney Swift, Brown Thrasher. 

Short list for the secret area and the neighborhood

  • Chimney Swift (FOY)
  • Brown Thrasher (FOY)
  • Carolina Wren
  • Black Vulture
  • Eurasian Collared Dove
  • Mourning Dove
  • Fish Crow
  • Common Grackle
  • Blue-gray Gnatcatcher
  • Northern Cardinal
  • Wood Stork
  • Red-shouldered Hawk

Additionally, there were at last two warbler species I could not identify. I’ll be checking this area out again. We’ll see how it pans out.

Yesterday the Great Crested Flycatchers returned to the neighborhood as well, having arrived either that morning or overnight.
