Subject: [Maine-birds] Evergreen Cemetery, Portland, ME
I birded Evergreen Cemetery from the 'junk' pond to the big pond and back.

To say the least it was overwhelming. There were hundreds of YELLOW-RUMPED
WARBLERS and WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS. In fact, when I first got there there
was so much noise on the forest floor that I was sure a WHITE-TAILED DEER
herd was going to pop out at any moment. No deer just hundreds and hundreds
of sparrows. As I walked, the forest floor kept leaping, it was kind of
creepy, as if the floor had come alive. I'm sure that I missed a lot
because I was trying to count those two species.

There were a number of other warbler species and other fun birds, but the
real highlight for me was a COMMON WHIP-POOR-WILL. I flushed the bird as I
was walking between the ponds and got to spend a bit of time observing the
bird before it flew off into the forest. I got a number of pictures and
will upload them to my eBird checklists later.

Here are my checklists:

I also want to give a shout out to Cornell's new BirdCast. It said there
would be a huge push overnight last night and it completely delivered. If
you aren't checking it you should be.

Be well
