Nice Day – Slow birding

I expected a little bit of a wave today.. I was mistaken… it was strangely quiet in the woods… I managed to see a Fox Sparrow and a couple of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers and Allen banded a Tree Sparrow… yep, not the signs I am looking for of a big wave coming in…. a couple of Hermit Thrush were still around and I found a Carolina Wren in the Maple Woods…. The Wilson’s Snipe was going crazy in Pointe Rosa Marsh… There were two Yellow Warblers by the first bridge and the Yellow-headed Blackbird was still coming to the feeders… Stopped by Wetzel…. No Clay-colored Sparrows yet… plenty of Swamps and Field Sparrows and Towhee calling… Pied-billed Grebes in the ponds….
