Spring Migration 2022


Recommended Posts

took a stroll down my street this morning {Southern KY}...Great-crested Flycatcher, Common Yellowthroat, Blue Grosbeak, Prairie Warbler and a pair of Cedar Waxwings that are still hanging out.  Except for the last, all firsts for this year.

Flooded farm fields paid off yesterday with 2 confirmed Long-billed Dowitchers.  4 more dowitchers that I put as 2 SBDO and 2 LBDO.  Some debate on those right now.  Only 2 American Golden-Plovers hanging around, and the fluddles were drying up fast.

Got much better photos of a hermit warbler today! There were two of them. Also two Nashville warblers, a warbling vireo, lots of Wilson’s warblers and lots of Western tanagers.

On the morning bird walk which I co-led: First of year Black-and-white Warbler. Also 3 Orchard Oriole adult males, all singing. 2 were close, while the third was high in a tree near a male Baltimore Oriole. I think the participants were all happy with these orioles. We also saw and heard 3 male Common Yellowthroats.

Summer Tanagers are back, along with the Barn Swallows. Saw 2 male, 1 female Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, there's a small flock (maybe 30?) of Cedar Waxwings still hanging around, as are a few Yellow-rumped Warblers. Also saw a pair of Baltimore Orioles - first time in about 6 years. Whoot!

The empids are definitely on the move out west. I saw a ton of them at Corn Creek a few days ago, and only a single one today. On the other hand, birds in the cardinal family are showing up, along with more warblers.

Yesterday morning my wife and I saw a male redstart that blew her mind because it was close and "glowing in the darkness of the forest", a Chestnut-sided Warbler that blew my mind because it was very close, a Northern Waterthrush, and Baltimore Orioles everywhere. And some other birds too.

FOY Northern Waterthrush, Wood Thrush and Ovenbird.  All within first 20 minutes of my first outing this morning.  Remaining 2 hours and 40 minutes, was just busy with the Palm Warblers and Yellow-rumped Warblers that are still here.
