More New Arrivals

Palm Warbler

Last night's migration was pretty intense and brought many new arrivals to Pheasant Branch Conservancy. I had FOS (first of spring) SPOTTED SANDPIPER, YELLOW WARBLER, LOUSISANA WATERTHRUSH, ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER, PALM WARBLER, GRAY CATBIRD, HOUSE WRENS, and OSPREY. There was a substantial influx of WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS, and presently a WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW is foraging at our feeders at Eagle Optics. Other birds at Pheasant Branch included BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER, EASTERN TOWHEE, BROWN THRASHER, PINE WARBLER, and lots of YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS.
