Re: [PABIRDS] worm-eating warbler, highspire - Sue Hannon - 2014-09-27 05:59:02


I didn't get a picture of the worm-eating warbler yesterday, but I did get
another look at it, and I am positive it was warbler, not vireo. Thanks
Dave.

[PABIRDS] Common Raven - Bucktoe Creek Preserve, Chester County - Larry Lewis & Kathleen Pileggi - 2014-09-26 18:31:14


Hello PA Birders, 
Today at the Bucktoe Creek Preserve Hawk Watch we had a Common Raven come in very low and calling right over our pavilion.  The bird then soared around in view for an extended period of time gaining height and drifting off to the NW.  This was our second Raven ever at Bucktoe and the first seen on the Hawk Watch. 
Also heard were 2 Purple Finches today. 
  
The Hawk Watch is held daily 9am - 3pm, thru Nov. 30.  Just follow the signs out to the parking lot.  Tomorrow, we are having a picnic/bonfire during the Watch, please come out and join us. 


Good Birding All,

[PABIRDS] worm-eating warbler, highspire - Sue Hannon - 2014-09-26 15:29:24


I just went to ebird to post today's birds and see that worm-eating warbler
is considered rare for this time of year. I have no photo, and was certain
when I saw it that it was a worm-eating, but it wasn't more than a second
long glimpse at a distance not less than 50 feet, so I'm inclined to think
it must have been a red-eyed vireo. I am heading back to Highspire to see
if I can get another chance at the Wilson's and the worm-eating with my
better (and much heavier) camera. Will post an update later.

[PABIRDS] Warblers and Great Horned Owl, Highspire Res Park, Dauphin County - Sue Hannon - 2014-09-26 15:17:58


The birding was good today at Highspire. 35 species, including Wilson's
(life bird), worm-eating, black-throated green, magnolia and Blackburnian
warblers, a scarlet tanager, a pair of ruby-throated hummingbirds, half a
dozen yellow-bellied sapsuckers, a first of the fall brown creeper, a
red-tailed hawk and a great horned owl. If the great-horned owl hadn't been
mobbed by a flock of crows, I never would have seen it - thanks, crows!

Re: [PABIRDS] Connecticut Warbler(s?), Canoe Creek SP, Blair Co - Michael David - 2014-09-26 11:08:32


Hi All,

I found a Connecticut Warbler again this morning. It was within feet of the
second listed location from Wednesday (40.486757, -78.280764), so may well
have been that bird continuing.

Best,

I was at all the ponds around Reistville and most are drier.

Only 8 Killdeer at all the ponds.

Horses had been running the mud along Prescott Rd.

At Middle Creek WMA near Sunnyside Road there  were 7 Blue-winged Teal that
flew to another pond
