It finally happened and a large push of birds that were being held up by the weather finally arrived this weekend. We added 28 new species this week, most from Saturday and Sunday, putting us at 103 species for the year. There are too many to talk about individually but some of the highlights was the Mourning and Bay-breasted Warblers which typically arrive in the second week of May instead of the first. Both species are hard to see but for different reasons, the Bay-breasted Warbler is usually dancing around in the treetops where you must crank your neck skyward while the Mourning Warbler is hiding in the underbrush near the ground. One other highlight and a favorite of mine would be the Blackburnian Warbler with its flame-colored throat, it never gets old seeing them. The weather for this coming week is looking good for migration so expect many more new species arriving soon.
