Subject: [ia-bird] close encounters of the bird kind
Bells's vireos are singing from every fenceline allowed to blur with
successional deciduous growth in the hay/pasture/crop mosaic around
Moulton, Davis Co.. In one location, a bird was picking beakfuls of silk
from a tent caterpillar colony, uninterested in the emergent larvae and
ants on it.

Morel hunting on a friend's property a few miles north of Maxwell in Story
Co. today was difficult due to the steady flow of warblers. 18 species,
including Pine and Cape May were seen. A Black & White came almost within
arm's reach.

A pair of Louisiana Waterthrushes are in the same spot as last year at the
far end of the Palisades-Dows Observatory. If you head northwest of the
telescopes to a small creek, and follow that to the Cedar, you'll
eventually bump into them.

A Lark Sparrow was south of the Eastern Iowa Airport on Walford Ave.

Good Birding,
Randall Scheiner
Ely, IA
