Four birders joined me for a #birdthepreserves field trip to Bemis Woods along Salt Creek in western Cook Co.. We covered both Bemis North and Bemis South, recording a total of 51 species. Highlight was 17 species of warblers with best 3 Golden-winged, a male Black-throated Blue that was singing, and a Northern Parula. Most common were 32 American Redstarts, 18 Tennessees and 13 Magnolias. Also good numbers of Red-eyed Vireos (16) and Indigo Buntings (23).
