Linda Vegliante and I scouted out Barn Island this morn from 9 to 11:30 in prep for tomorrow's NHBC walk.
Highlights and non highlights of the 46 species seen. We birded only in the 4 impoundments.
Stopped very briefly to see if Bobolinks are back on Palmer Neck Rd. None, but lots of RW Blackbirds
Not a lot of migrants but Baltimore Orioles, Yellow Warblers and Common Yellowthroats were everywhere.
1 Blue-winged Warbler
1 Saltmarsh Sparrow
Two Willow Flycatchers seen and heard, and 1 Wood Pewee heard
3 White-eyed Vireo and 2 Yellow-throated Vireo
Several shorebird species with Willet being the most numerous
1 Tricolored Heron still present
Many Glossy Ibis
