Oh how happy I am for this warm and wonderful day ! I expected some new birds today after watching the migration prediction for last night and I wasn't disappointed. I went for a run this morning on the Redbank Valley Trail at Lawsonham and headed down towards Redbank. I went about 1.6 miles down and turned and in that distance found 3 singing Louisiana waterthrush, a blue-headed vireo singing and best of all a yellow-throated warbler ! I was stopped at a small run and trying to get a recording of the waterthrush when I noticed another bird foraging in the trees mid-level. Bright, stunning yellow throat and the lovely black and white patterned back, what a treat. It was close enough that I could actually see it pretty well despite not even having bins with me. It wasn't singing. I am happy to see them back at this location which is proving to be a reliable spot for them in summer as breeders. Lots of phoebes were calling as well and a scattering of golden-crowned kinglets, no ruby-crowns yet. A great day to be out, enjoy the day !
