Subject: [CT Birds] Yellow-bellied Flycatcher Kent, Skiff Mountain South Preserve
A Yellow-bellied Flycatcher (YBFL) landed in the mist net this morning.
Also had a beautiful male Magnolia Warbler in net. Willow Flycatcher and
Blue-winged Warbler also in the area. An e-Bird list will be entered later
this afternoon after I finish teaching my Zoom classes. Also Purple
Martins are very active in houses by tennis courts on the Marvelwood School
Campus.

To access the area with flycatchers, park in the Kiosk Area for the Kent
Land Trust Skiff Mountain South Preserve. Explore the Blue and Yellow
trail for the flycatchers. If you are up for a longer walk try the orange
and red trails. Along the red-trail there is a forest gap, around a meadow
where Ceruleans often are singing. Wood thrush and Worm-eating Warblers
are usually found just past the meadow where there is an area of Striped
Maple and rock slope area. If you do hike the red-trail be alert for
Black Bears in that area.
