Tweets – we had nothing but light rain and drizzle today, and it really hid the birds. Low species count for the day, and many of those heard-only. Just not that many birds wanting to be found.

a.. Wood Duck – female sitting on a pile of ducklings at Rowing Club, same as last week
b.. Band-tailed Pigeon – at least 20
c.. BLACK SWIFT – perhaps a dozen, despite the drizzle
d.. ASH-THROATED FLYCATCHER – in dying cherry trees along trail below the weir – strange location
e.. Wilson’s Warbler – one heard near east end of boardwalk. Probably won’t have another until the end of July, as they don’t nest in the park
f.. Lazuli Bunting – male chasing female around the north edge of the East Meadow
The baby GREAT BLUE HERONS are getting very large at the heronry.

The highlights list was rather short today, and the species count was just 54 (down from 71 last week).
