Fort Rosecrans Late Morning
Pulled up late to Fort Rosecrans. Most birds seem to have left with the clear skies. The exception being the continuing BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER and a CLAY-COLORED SPARROW.
The Cassin’s Vireo continues. Note that these vireos molt in late summer so they will be at their brightest in fall. This bird lacks the clear contrast on the throat and back to be a BHVI.
In the NE corner of the west side I had a continuing Western Flycatcher making a two part upslurred whistle very sporadically. Other present also finally heard it. Without analysis by recordings I can’t really be sure of it being anything other than a Western Flycatcher and it sounded more intermediate to me.
While waiting for that bird to call we had a light morph juvenile BROAD-WINGED HAWK flyby that was photographed and seen by many that was first spotted by Kenny Kimbrough.
