The final walk in the Mascoma Chapter's 2019 "Warbler Wednesdays" series took place under conditions much the same as when the series began on May 1. The weather was cool and damp, albeit the temperature was in the mid-40s and not in the mid-30s as was the case when the first walk was held. Just the same, meteorologically speaking, it seemed as if the needle had scarcely budged.
A dozen people participated and were rewarded with some noteworthy late migration season sightings. An olive-sided flycatcher was seen in the woods adjacent to the access trail on the way up to the lake, and at the lake, a mourning warbler was discovered foraging in some brush near the shore.
In all, 43 species were tallied including three different vireo types; red-eyed, blue-headed and yellow-throated. In addition to the mourning warbler, ten other warblers were recorded including a blackburnian, northern parula (three), American redstart (six) and a black-and-white.

Thanks to George Clark and Blake Allison for being co-leaders, and thanks to Blake for keeping the eBird count.
