Impressive diversity, and a fair amount of cacophony. Probably even more species, but at times (especially in the early successional field) the goldfinches drowned almost everything out.

  26. Number observed: 6

    Comments: Single flock of only imm males and females. At one point, I watched a female perform a begging display to an imm male (including the hopping from branch to branch, around him, while making the quivering begging calls and prostrating in a begging posture).

  27. Number observed: 28

    Comments: Flyover flock. Very noisy. Constant "tews" amd "zips". Heading due north.

  28. Number observed: 25

    Comments: Conservative estimate. Seemingly everywhere, and noisy to the point of drowning out distant warbler song. Kind of annoying .

    Comments: Conservative estimate. Within the first half an hour I had two flocks mostly in flight, doing large circuits overhead: one of 8, the other 18, birds. They both only alighted in trees for mere seconds. Made ID based on a few of the single note whistle calls. Didn't hear chatter, but could barely hear them anyway because of the insane number of goldfinches.

    When I made it to the main field, I had at least 5 birds there, however they could very well have been part of one of those flocks. I didnt spent much time in the field, so there could have been more.

    Comments: Singing consistently.

  39. Number observed: 1

    Comments: Adult seen near the northwestmost trailhead (the one that leads to the small northern swamp), off the main "road", past the main windrow on the left. I was standing at the edge of the forest when the bird flew into a small pine tree about 30' away. This is where I got my best view.

    Though mostly a rear view (strong foreshortening, but I could see the head), I could see it was a small, all dull-olive, warbler. No wing bars.

    When it flew in, it very briefly alighted on a shrub branch maybe 18" off the ground. During my best looks, it was eye level. I got another brief look of it in the nearest, smaller, white pine, where it was about waist high off the ground. In general, this bird was moving north, quickly and silently. I'm very familiar with this species from my many years in Texas. No other warbler has this unique "lack" of distinctive field marks. Not a female Black-throated Blue due to lack of small white patch in wing. It was also smaller, shaped differently, and much more uniformly colored.
