They keep coming

The last couple of days have been pretty spectacular for new migrant arrivals. The treetops are often filled with warblers these days, so look up! In the last two days alone, the following birds have arrived at Powderhorn Park for the first time this year:

  • Savannah Sparrow*
  • Eastern Kingbird
  • Great Crested Flycatcher
  • Tennessee Warbler (among the Nashville and Orange-crowned warblers)
  • Ovenbird
  • Blackburnian Warbler*
  • Golden-winged Warbler*
  • Rose-breasted Grosbeak
  • Scarlet Tanager*
  • Green Herons (2 on the island)

* birds I've not previously seen at Powderhorn

In addition, Swainson's Thrushes are still around, and I even saw a pair of Downy Woodpeckers mating this morning.
