Migration Workshop 2
Jackson Park, Hendersonville, NC
September 28, 2013
The September 28th trip to Jackson Park was quite the success. A full crowd of participants enjoyed comfortable weather for the majority of the day and found 16 species of warblers, not too shabby for somewhat of a quiet fall season. One, likely two Wilson's Warblers were the best find of the day. Four Canada Warblers were a nice touch on the day as well.
A brief look at a Worm-eating Warbler was enjoyed by a couple folks, and several Cape May, Bay-breasted, and Blackburnian Warblers put on a nice show as well. Other warblers seen included Tennessee, Magnolia, Yellow-throated, Hooded, American Redstarts, Northern Parulas, as well as Common Yellowthroats and Louisiana Waterthrush. A Yellow-bellied Sapsucker seen briefly by a couple participants was a bit early, and a couple Yellow-billed Cuckoos provided some nice looks as well! The total species tally for the day was approximately 60, and it proved to be an enjoyable day for all!
