Is anyone taking advantage of the free new member walks that John Boettcher is leading on Wednesday nights? Here’s his report of previous nights.

Wednesday Evening Warblers Update – J. Boettcher

Starting May 9th at 6:00 pm till dark. Lakeview Community Church parking lot on Long Pond Road near Edgemere Drive. This will continue until June 13th or so. Come out and join in.

May 9 – Beautiful evening with very light wind and 70’s temp. 12 people attending. 5 warblers cooperated – Yellow-rump, Yellow, Black-throated blue, Blackburnian, and Redstart.

May 16 – Even nicer weather than the previous week. Many more people (19) and warblers (12) – Palm, Chestnut-sided, Yellow, Magnolia, Wilson’s, Black-throated Blue, Bay-breasted, Black and White, and Yellow rump Warbler along with Common Yellow-throat, American Redstart, and Northern Parula. Capper for the evening was a fly-by of some Common Nighthawks.

May 23 – The weather continues to cooperate – 70F with moderate wind. The wind and the emerging leaves made finding the birds more difficult. Eight folks showed up for the evening and we found nine species of warblers – Palm, Yellow, Yellow-rump, Bay-breasted, Black-throated Green (h), Blackpoll (h), Northern Parula, Common Yellowthroat, and American Redstart. In addition to the warblers, we had species of vireo and flycatcher calling.
