What seemed a slow day beginning at HLSP quickly turned into a great day. At first the only notable bird I saw was an Ovenbird, but then I walked down to the dried up pond - I noticed my FOS White Throated Sparrows and a Rusty Blackbird. A closer look around the pond and I started seeing a loose flock of warblers. Walking in and around the pond I saw Northern Waterthrush, lots of Northern Parulas, a few Black Throated Blue Warblers, Yellow Rumped Wabler, Palm Warblers, a Black Throated Green and one or 2 lifer Tennessee Warblers!
A walked in Frank Melville Park produced a gorgeous looking Eurasian Wigeon hybrid, Gadwall, American Wigeon, a Green Heron, Great Egret, Great Blue Heron and several Snowy Egrets. I headed over to Avalon Preserve to try my luck finding Bobwhites - after a while I found a bunch but they got spooked into the weeds - with a little patience I waited and they came back out - a group of 8!
