Great variety this morning for migrating songbirds! Selleck Woods is a special place to me for the last five years or so, especially during spring migration season. I was lucky enough to bump into Ryan, who works at Greenwich Audubon, who helped me identify the song of the Hooded Warbler, which we eventually found visually.

I spent a solid 2-1/2 hours at the park circumnavigating it several times. I relocated the Hooded Warbler about an hour after Ryan and I found it, and shared it with three other birders to enjoy. Here is this morning’s list of warblers, thrushes, orioles, flycatchers, vireos, tanagers and more. Most were calling and singing:

1 Hooded Warbler (my first at this location)
2 Chestnut-side Warblers
2 Nashville Warblers
1 Black-throated Blue Warbler
1 Black-throated Green Warbler
1 Yellow Warbler
1 Common Yellowthroat
Dozen plus Northern Parulas
Dozen plus Black and White Warblers
Dozen plus Yellow-rumped Warblers
5 Ovenbirds
1 Scarlet Tanager
1 Great-crested Flycatcher
1 Warbling Vireo
5 Baltimore Orioles
2 Wood Thrushes
1 Swainson’s Thrush
2 Gray Catbirds

Migrant flyovers:
5 Chimney Swifts
