Last week was most certainly a tipping point in spring migration! I observed quite a few FOY birds for the trail that have arrived in migration. Also, birds are singing their springtime songs and acting rather defensive over territory. I observed a great standoff between a Tree Swallow and an Eastern Bluebird as the swallow took multiple dives at the bluebird! Also, seven species of warbler were spotted on the trail this past week including a high total of two Black-throated Green Warblers! This was the third property record of this species and the first record of this species on the trail in the spring season. The two previous records come from September 2013 and 2016.
I was out six times on the trail this past week so instead of posting the individual checklists, I've created a cumulative species list from the week. I observed a total of 46 species!
Cumulative species list for the week:
