This morning at 7:30 @ Bakerville swamp, New Hartford had a 2 - fer.
It was foggy, but seen close by the rd under a bush by the water was a first of year YELLOW BELLIED FLYCATCHER. Stayed close for 5 mins. A new bird for me in this swamp in all the years i have birded here was a Double crested Cormorant.Unusual place for this bird. Just before leaving, while talking to a woman walking her dog, I spotted another Vireo, probably a Warbling, but it turned out to be a PHILADELPHIA VIREO! great looks at both new birds this morn. Also seen were 8 Empidonax flycatchers believed to be Willows and Alders.
