The Red-headed Woodpecker continues at its usual spot at Blockhouse Point Conservation Park on April 2 and today April 6. Expected migrants are arriving now, including lots of Flickers (over 20, with 11 feeding in one place). Also B.g. Gnatcatcher, No. Rough-winged Swallow, Louisiana Waterthrush, etc. My first ever Rusty Blackbird for the park was perched in trees at the vernal pools on the Muddy Branch Greenway Trail.
At Woodstock Equestrian Park in the western part of the county, I saw Vesper Sparrows yesterday but they were not in evidence today. I saw my first Yellow Palm Warbler of the season there today.
