I stopped at a few spots around the north end of Hoover Reservoir today, and found migration somewhat stalled despite (or because) of the nice weather. Perhaps most of the migrants are overflying us. Stops at the Boardwalk, Area N, Hoover Meadows, the Sunbury causeway, and Twin Bridges found a steady trickle of Ruby-cr.Kinglets, House Wrens, and Yellow-rumped warblers, but little else for migrants. Notables included
Osprey - at least 4-5 were hanging around the platforms and bay off the boardwalk at Area M Red-br.Mergansers - at least 3 were still around off the Boardwalk Caspian Tern - an adult was sitting with a group of gulls on a snag off the Boardwalk Cliff Swallows - at least 2 were hanging around the Sunbury causeway, but none had returned to the colonies at Area N or Twin bridges Parula Warbler - 1 was singing along Big Walnut Creek in Area N Yellow-throated Warblers - singers in many locations Field Sparrows - 5-6 were already on territories at Hoover Meadows Swamp Sparrows - 2 were singing in the marshes at Hoover Meadows
