I walked around Ecology Park and Beavermead Park this morning (9 a.m.) and recorded nine species of warblers including Northern Parula, American Redstart, Blackburnian, Palm, Ovenbird and Black-throated Green. In all, I probably saw 80 to 100 warblers, most of which were Yellow-rumped. Other birds of interest included Least Flycatcher (1), Baltimore Oriole (1), Rose-breasted Grosbeak (5), Warbling Vireo (4) and Blue-headed Vireo (3). Most of the birds were actually in the area of Beavermead where people park their trailers – across the creek from Ecology Park. Later in the morning, I heard a House Wren singing on Maple Crescent.
