Spring Migration 2022


Recommended Posts

There was only 2 redpolls in the Ravine this morning when just under two weeks ago you’d find over 100 every morning.
I was hoping they’d persist a little longer but I guess not 😔
Lots of swans moving through and finally other waterfowl at the ponds other than mallards. 
Added my FOY tree swallow, American tree sparrow, and American coot just in the last few days.

You're so far north ATSP breed there?

Not quite that far North! Typically they’re only seen here in migration and move through March-April and then move back through in September-October. Though, a handful usually overwinter somewhere in the city ever year, but not in high enough numbers where you’d expect to see them at your feeder, or out birding.

Oh, I see. They winter here in large numbers.

Lesser Yellowlegs, Osprey (finally, and next day caught two of them copulating), Yellow-rumped Warbler (finally), Virginia Rail, Vesper Sparrow (thank you Merlin for helping with the call), and Red-shouldered Hawk (that I thought was a Cooper's for a while).

Actually went out birding for the first time in over a month. Mostly birded by car, but got:

-Summer Tanager
-Ovenbird
-Prairie Warbler
-Northern Parula
-Great Crested Flycatcher
-Northern Rough-winged Swallow
-Purple Martin
-Chuck-will's-widow
-Eastern Whip-poor-will
 
May have also had Hooded Warbler, or something that sounds similar, and also maybe Northern Waterthrush. Heard chip noises that were Waterthrush-esque.
 
Migration has begun!
