Spent a few hours this morning birding Hartman Park, specifically under
the power lines.
Countless blue-winged and yellow warblers, a handful of prairie warblers
and redstarts, 1 scarlet tanager, pair of eastern towhees, grosbeaks,
R-T hummingbirds, lots of Chipping and Field sparrows, at least 2
white-eyed vireos. Score of the day was finally getting one of at least
3 yellow-billed cuckoo to finally come out and show himself--put on
quite a show for a couple of minutes before flying back into the
thickets. Thank you to Russ for mentioning that he heard a couple as he
was walking out and I was walking in.
A quick scan through the parking lot area yielded phoebe, numerous
ovenbirds, worm-eating, thrushes, and more redstarts. Didn't see or
hear any ceruleans.
Pictures of the cuckoo and vireos for those interested:
