The birds are gradually filtering northward. * indicates FOS. In my yard: Monday: *Rose-breasted Grosbeak * and White Warbler * Warbler Baltimore Oriole White-crowned Warbler Wood Duck, male and female Harris's Sparrow (numbers have been much lower than past years) Tuesday: Great Horned Owl - 3 Wood Duck pair Yellow Warbler - 4 Harris' Sparrow *Least Flycatcher *Blackpoll Warbler *Chimney Swift - 2 *Eastern Kingbird
Then I walked around Ponca State Park for a couple hours hoping to remind the Hooded Warbler reported yesterday. I checked all picnic areas since I'm not sure which was referred to but no luck. Did find: *Yellow-throated Vireo *Swainson's, *Wood, and *Gray-cheeked Thrushes Eastern Towhee *American Redstart *Blue-gray Gnatchatcher Least Flycatcher *Northern Waterthrush- 2 *Louisiana Waterthrush - 1 Red-headed Woodpeckers are all over this week
In Sioux City, Iowa I saw a *Western Kingbird close to the Mall.
