I did another survey at Siegel Marsh/SGL 218 this morning. I was there on June 3 and wanted to check the area again, the weather wasn't as great this morning but still a nice trip.
From the blocked roadway across the back area of the marsh behind the headquarters building I did have Virginia rail still calling, although wasn't able to see it today. No sora heard or seen today and though I thought I had marsh wrens just calling a little, I wasn't sure and they weren't actually singing so not able to confirm breeding. Warbling vireos were still singing and lots of tree swallows feeding young. Best of all was the mourning warbler singing in the same location up in the woods bordering the marsh. It sang almost the whole time I were there and I did manage to work my way in through the heavy undergrowth to see it. It was actually singing from the very same tree. I was hoping to find a female and get some confirmation of breeding but no luck. However, I am assuming that there was likely a female and nest was around or would assume it would not be singing in the same location. Very nice to find it again !
This is a great area and would like at some point to have more time to spend birding here. Not enough hours in the day for birding..
