After the rain and cold front came through yesterday I thought today would be a good time to top up my Harvey county list. I was not disappointed. I hit the Osage trail first and quickly found a yellow-rumped warbler. At least 3-4 sedge wrens were chattering in the prairie nearby. A group of warblers included several each Nashville, orange-crowned and common yellow-throats. I also found a blue-headed vireo, a bird which has eluded me many times in Harvey co. Next stop was Harvey Co East park which had an osprey, more than 100 Franklin's gulls, 5 Forster's terns, a couple of cattle egrets and a mixed flock of swallows including barn, tree and bank. At home in Wichita, the Bewick's wren in my backyard showed up again yesterday after being missing for a week or more.
