I visited several areas along this corridor this afternoon, with stops at Kiwanis Park, Donegal Cliffs, Amberleigh Park, and the O'Shaughnessy Dam. The weather was mild, but neotropical migrants were hard to come by, as temperate migrants carried the day. Included in the list were:
Vultures - small groups of Turkey Vultures at every stop; the gathering roost near the dam had 62+ birds. Black Vultures included 1 bird at Kiwanis and 2 at the dam.
Hawks - Kiwanis had a Sharpie and a calling Red-shouldered, while the dam had a Cooper's
Vireos - Kiwanis had 2 Blue-headed and 1 Philadelphia
Kinglets - not much, with Ruby-crowns at Kiwanis and 1 Golden-cr. at Amberleigh
Wrens - 1 Winter Wren was calling in the riparian woods at Amberleigh
Thrushes - nothing other than Bluebirds and Robins
Warblers - a few Yellow-rumps at every stop, but that was the extent of it
Buntings,Grosbeaks - no grosbeaks, but an Indigo Bunting was at Donegal Cliffs
Blackbirds - the only notable numbers were 20+ Redwings and 6+ Grackles at Kiwanis
