Westmount, Summit Park - Jim Houghton Warbler Walk, Tuesday May 18th

This morning we were greeted at 7:00 am by a sunny day, no wind to speak of, and temperature rising from single digits in the early morning to middle teens, making the walking very pleasant. As our walk concluded at around 9:00 am, increasing winds from the southwest hinted approaching rain, and perhaps more warbler fall-out tomorrow.

15 birders observed and/or heard 29 species today.
Red-shouldered Hawk 1, Merlin 1, Ring-billed Gull 1, Chimney Swift 6, Downy Woodpecker 1, Hairy Woodpecker 2, Northern Flicker 1, Pileated Woodpecker 1, Great Crested Flycatcher 2, Red-eyed Vireo 1, Blue Jay 2, American Crow 6, Black-capped Chickadee 2, Wood Thrush 1, American Robin 4, European Starling 8, Tennessee Warbler 1, Chestnut-sided Warbler 2, Magnolia Warbler 3, Black-throated Blue Warbler 2, Black-throated Green Warbler 1, American Redstart 2, Chipping Sparrow 3, Northern Cardinal 5, Indigo Bunting 2, Red-winged Blackbird 1, Common Grackle 1, American Goldfinch 8, House Sparrow 1
