Stops at these 2 west Dublin parks this morning produced a good list,
including some birds that didn't realize that migration was over, and a few
others that weren't sure about where they should be. In the former
-Olive-sided Flycatcher - flycatching from a snag along Tullymore Dr on the
edge of Trabue Preserve, certainly not a resident there
-Black-billed Cuckoo - one around the pond at Trabue, either a late migrant
or a wanderer
In the latter category were
-Henslow's Sparrow - 1 signing in the meadow north of the windmill at
Glacier Ridge. No Savannah or Grasshopper Sparrows here, so it must have
grown up a bit too much for them
-Marsh Wren - 1 was singing near the tower at the Honda wetlands; good
habitat for them, they just often aren't around there
More expected (but still pleasing) included
-Bobolinks - at least 2 males were still singing in the north meadow at
-Orchard orioles - pairs were carrying food at both the wetland and along
the north bike loop at Glacier Ridge
-Summer Tanager - 1 was calling in McKitrick Woods, off the corner of
McKitrick Road and Hyland-Croy
