Prospect April 5th

Some continuation of yesterday's early spring birds were observed , especially in the Midwood where the ground was evident of DARK-EYED JUNCOS  and some HERMIT THRUSHES. PALM WARBLERS seen in fewer numbers , some hanging out with CHIPPING SPARROW flocks, two separate ones observed today.

Speaking of CHIPPING, a small flock in the Sparrowbowl , between the Picnic and Tennis Houses, had one SAVANNAH SPARROW. Farther back on the back slope woods, a FOX SPARROW crept along stealthily on those sparse woods.

An enjoyable observation when Eni Falci ran into me at the Little Rock Arch, 3 YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKERS on the same cherry tree seeping sap,right above the lower steps next to that small boulder bridge Little Rock Arch.

4 WOOD DUCKS continued in the Upper Pool.


From Matthew Wills:

Hey, Peter

Great running into you on your lunch break. Thanks for those Chipping and Savannah in the Bowl. Another flock of Chipping at Nellie's Lawn entrance to Vale. Four Turkey vultures overhead at once. Winter wren in Ravine.
