It was an interesting and wonderfully cool morning at the bio reserve. There were frequent, small mixed flocks that would be feeding but moving through quickly and then disappear. Sometimes I wondered if it was the same flock returning as the mix of birds was often quite similar.
The most exciting find was a brief look at a Connecticut warbler as I was chasing down a waterthrush that was chipping between the spring peeper and Wood duck ponds. The CT poked its head up out of dense cover long enough for me to see the gray hood and complete eye ring and then, of course, it pulled its usual vanishing act, never to be found again.
I lost the waterthrush after I saw the Connecticut but most likely it was a Louisiana given what I did see of it.
A black throated green was in nearly full breeding plumage & was actually singing softly. I also saw a brightly-plumaged Blackburnian and magnolia.
Forgot to mention that yesterday I also saw a brown thrasher & 2 ruby throated hummingbirds. Did not see either of them today. Still lots of catbirds. Female Belted KF.
Also had a possible pale Philadelphia Vireo but lean more towards a warbling as the yellow was more concentrated on the sides.
