And with it came migrants. I birded the Ernest Oros Preserve in Woodbridge this morning with Pat Belardo. My second trip this week. The warm weather brought Gnatcatcher, Savannah Sparrow, Hermit Thrush, a Towhee heard and, the most fun, a Yellow-throated Warbler. Pat did the checking; this locally rare bird has been reported less than 10 times in Middlesex County. Also present was a Wilson's Snipe and lingering Rusty Blackbirds, Palm and Yellow Rump Warbler, both kinglets and more. Thirty-eight species over the two days in this pocket-sized, multi-habitat preserve.
Good birding all.
