SONGBIRD MIGRATION IN FULL SWING! A Prothonatary Warbler was seen again yesterday! I have some photos that are not good , but they do identify the bird. Last year my boss Chris Mccreedy of PRBO (Point Reyes Bird Observatory), asked me which North American bird that I would most like to see. Prothonotary was my answer. Imagine my excitement when it first landed here above the little garden hose pond!
Dozens of female Lazuli Buntings are moving through Shoshone right now along with tons of warblers. According to Birds of North America online, the females migrate after the males. I've seen no males this month yet.
Some excellent birding is right in town around the Crowbar Restaurant and Amargosa Conservancy. The new path behind the Warm Springs Pool is accessible now and we've added a little side path with great views into thick cover. A Sharp Shinned Hawk bathed in the garden hose pond last night A Common Poorwill was singing on the tennis courts after dark.
