Comments

with Van Remsen, Eamon Corbett, Alec Cowles, Dan Lane, Jack Rogers, and Tim White. We arrived at this location after it was already well-covered by David Muth, Joan Garvey, Mark Meunier, and company (see their more complete list). In fact, they so graciously had a Groove-billed Ani all teed-up for us when we serendipitously arrived. Birded both "sides" of the cemetery (G B H Lane and the unnamed cut to the northwest) as well as the middle of the cemetery itself. Short, brushy forest and weedy margins was ripe for unusual over-wintering songbirds. Used targeted playback and mob tape liberally. Mild (63-61°F), mostly cloudy, with an E wind (~10 mph).

    Comments: Female or immature male (there was some debate about whether an apparent dark fleck on the throat was an incoming gorget feather or disheveled plumage, upon review of photos, seems to be molt)

    Comments: Very rare in winter. Husky, strained, and rising "sheaf" call notes. Heard calling spontaneously and then responded immediately to playback (and again to a second bout) of these calls. A bright yellow warbler below with a yellow rump, a vague pale breastband, and few thin black steaks on the lower flanks. I can't remember if I saw wingbars or not. Tim White saw the black-and-white tail pattern. Likely the same bird that was photographed here in December (S51137426). Not photographed today, although we tried.
