I birded a few spots in Harvey County this AM. The 14th Street Wetlands in Newton had Solitary, Spotted, and Pectoral Sandpipers and Greater Yellowlegs along with Mallard, Ring-necked Duck, Wood Duck and Blue-winged Teal. A Yellow Warbler started the Warbler migration season for me in the county. Roughly 40 species at that location.
HV County East Lake had Pectoral Sandpipers and a Spotted Sandpiper along with a Wilson's Phalarope and Greater Yellowlegs. Warblers included Yellow-rumped and a singing Palm Warbler. Nice to see Baltimore Oriole, Eastern Kingbird and hear two Warbling Vireo's. 49 species at the park.
I had a FOS female Baltimore Oriole show up at the feeder this afternoon in Newton.
