Re(1): Sewage Lagoons birds of interest

Went looking for the Sedge Wren at the pipeline this morning, but didn't find it. Instead, I had a huge wave of warblers pass by me, foraging low in the trees as they generally moved north...including at least three Bay-breasted, and four Black-throated Blue (yeah!). Also a Philadelphia Vireo. At the edge of the woods west of cell 2 there were also many birds, including five Eastern Kingbirds, three Scarlet Tanagers, and my first Red-eyed Vireo of the year. A nice male Canada Warbler and a Tennessee Warbler were by the viewing stand at Kerr Park. Two Lesser Yellowlegs and a flock of ten Black-bellied Plovers flew over the Bracebridge Ponds, but did not try to land...water levels still very high so no muddy shore.

I hoped the Black-bellied Plovers might have decided to land in the plowed field along South Monck Dr., but couldn't find them there later. A female Northern Harrier caught something in the field across from McCranks, and a Carolina Wren was singing near the vets. Two Brown Thrashers were on the road by the thicket swamp, and a Green Heron flew overhead. (Bracebridge)
