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.
