Jackson Bottom birds, March 20-26, 2010



A new migrant this week was SAVANNAH SPARROW. Several were noted starting March 24. On March 26 came the first report of COMMON YELLOWTHROAT.

Other migrants increased in numbers, including TREE SWALLOWS, RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRDS, GREATER YELLOWLEGS, and TURKEY VULTURES.

A EURASIAN WIGEON was reported March 20 and a PEREGRINE FALCON put in an appearance on March 26.

BUSHTITS are building nests now. The GREAT HORNED OWL chick is about 2/3 of adult size.

Otherwise, a fairly quiet week bird-wise.
