Subject: Allegheny County eBird Report - Knob Hill Park - FOY Birds, Apr 13, 2018
After seeing good birds in the yard, I walked Knob Hill for several hours today. FOY birds were: 2 Winter Wrens, 11 Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, 4 Hermit Thrush, 1 Yellow-rumped Warbler, 13 Ruby-crowned Kinglets, 1 Fox Sparrow, 3 Field Sparrows, 4 Northern Flickers, 4 male Towhee (saw females there previously), 2 Eastern Phoebe, 1 female Red-winged Blackbird, and 8 Cowbirds. Amazing numbers today. A beautiful day to be outside, and to think we wore gloves birding at Cedar Creek on Wednesday morning!
Knob Hill Park, Allegheny, Pennsylvania, US Apr 13, 2018 10:30 AM - 1:50 PM Protocol: Traveling 2.15 mile(s) Comments: 1 White-tailed Deer, 1 Bull Frog at Vernal Pool 32 species
Turkey Vulture 2 Red-tailed Hawk 2 Mourning Dove 3 Red-bellied Woodpecker 3 Yellow-bellied Sapsucker 11 FOY. I walked the entire park from the ball fields parking lot, along the Knob Hill Trail, Shadow Wood Trail, DeArment and Summit Trails, and along the disc golf course perimeter. I am certain of the count, and in fact, I believe I am underestimating the number. I do know where to look for these birds during migration in this park, and they were in these particular areas in great number.
