Mounds State Park 10/10/18
Pedometer: 1.33 miles walked, cloudy, fairly cool Thought I'd check the park for migrants dropping in ahead of the cold front. Very slow. I parked at the dead end T-section at the campground. I walked the road to the boat launch and doubled back along the river trail. I saw nothing. The birds were hiding so I went to the campground office and sat on the picnic table for 15 minutes. Soon the weeds along the woodland edge across from the office started shaking. I was able to log a female Magnolia and Tennessee Warbler here. I then moved to the RV dump station where there was a large flock feeding here (Pileated Woodpecker, Sapsucker many Downys,Chickadees,etc.). I found a Yellow-throated Warbler here, high in the tree tops. Seems late for this species of warbler. Then I worked the edging at the east end of the overflow campground parking lot. At the restrooms I found a first winter Connecticut Warbler.
