LaFitte's Cove Bird Report 5-14-11

I birded from 10am to noon.The north breeze kept some birds in the woods from yesterday. It was as busy as some days during this years peak migration.

Warblers seen were - No. Parula, Chestnut-sided, Bay-breasted, Black-throated Green, Blackburnian, Magnolia, Black-and-white, No. Waterthrush, Am. Redstart - 9 species in all

Several YB Cuckoos including one that came to the drip.

Other migrants were Red-eyed Vireos and 1 Philadelphia Vireo, Indigo Buntings, Swainson's Thrush

A pair of Bronzed Cowbirds was also in the woods.

Photos from today...

Yellow-billed Cuckoo flew down to the drip. This photo is uncropped.

The same bird looking at the camera - he almost looks like a raptor with the curved yellow bill.
