The Amargosa Vole project area in Shoshone, has recently been the "hot spot" for migrants.The new bulrush growth and removal of cattails has created a perfect little spot for birds to drink, bathe, preen and feed.
As soon as the sun hits this spot in the morning, warblers have been stacking up in the branches above. They carefully work their way down to pick insects from the surface,and find a safe spot to drink and bathe.
A Northern Waterthrush arrived yesterday and provided excellent close viewing, and some snappy one syllable chip-note calls.
