A Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition sponsored bird walk at Sears Island drew 16
participants and amassed a list of 35 species from 7 to 9:30 AM this morning.
Many of the onlookers thrilled to pretty good looks at Chestnut-sided Warbler,
American Redstart, Northern Parula, Common Yellowthroat, Veery and a
very cooperative, brilliantly plumaged Nashville Warbler (below eye level).
A surprise Olive-sided Flycatcher was among the list of heard birds.
It was a chilly morning with fairly sparse overall abundance of birds.
Nevertheless, some of the birds were point blank drawing a fair number
of oohs and ahhs. Let’s not forget the distance some of these species
have traveled - and perhaps, how far they have yet to go!
Good birding All.
