Co-led a bird walk for Belfast Bay Watershed’s Bird Week walk in Coastal
Mountains Land Trust’s Ducktrap River Preserve on Route 52 in Lincolnville.
For the three of us who lingered late, we were rewarded with a good long
observation of a singing immature male SUMMER TANAGER. He was feeding in
two trees on either side of the trail, about 30 yds in on the northbound
trail, going back and forth, for about 1/2 hr. He was still there when we
left at 10:30.
Other highlights included:
Red-shouldered Hawk - 1
Broad winged Hawk - 1 pr
Bald Eagle - 1 ad, 1 2nd yr
Barred Owl - 1
Least Flycatcher - 3-4
Blue-headed Vireo - many
Veery - 2 (FOY for me)
Blackburnian Warbler - 12+
Black-throated Blue W - 1
Black-throated Green W
Magnolia w - 2 (FOY)
Yellow W - 1
Lovely morning to be up with the birds!
