Jerry Warner’s Links Bridge Bird Count, April 24, 2022
Hi Bob and Joan,
Just wanted to pass along my checklist from Sunday morning. I arrived around 7:15 AM and departed around 9:30 AM. I had a really good morning of birding on your property and was able to see several spring migrants like Wood Thrush, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Blue-headed Vireo, Warbling Vireo, Northern Parula, Ovenbird, and Black-throated Green Warbler. Highlights from my survey included documenting Northern Rough-Winged Swallow nest building in the stone pier of the old bridge. This observation was really important because prior to yesterday we didn’t have this species of swallow confirmed as breeding in this 3×3 mile Atlas survey block; now we do! Also, I got to see what we call a “Life Bird” (a species of bird you observe for the first time) on your property: a Nashville Warbler! This was quite exciting!
[Below is a] list of species I observed Sunday morning (total of 43).
|Northern Rough-winged Swallow||10|
|Black-throated Green Warbler||4|
