Rick Schmid, Deb and I birded Indian Cave State Park for several hours
today:

Birding was fairly slow, but some migrants made their appearance, mostly
just 1 or 2 birds, including the following:



Warblers:

4 Yellow-rumped

1 Orange-crowned

6 Northern Parula

3 Ovenbirds

2 Yellow Warblers

1 American Redstart

1 Common Yellowthroat



Other migrants included:

2 Yellow-throated Vireos

2 Indigo Buntings

6 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks

1 Baltimore Oriole

1 Wood Thrush

1 Great Crested Flycatcher

1 Warbling Vireo

1 Western Kingbird





We saw no tanagers or flycatchers except for the Western Kingbird and Great
Crested Flycatcher



A rather unexpected bird was a Red-breasted Nuthatch

We also had 1 Dickcissel on the highway west of the park entrance.

There were good numbers of Harris's, Chipping, Field and White-throated
Sparrows plus 2 White-crowned.
