The Chuck-will's-widow remains (12 days at least now), and a single Red crossbill was singing at the lodge. Pretty amazing to have these two species within a few hundred yards of each other in late May. The Chuck-will's-widow has been present for at least 12 days now, and the crossbills were first seen at the lodge over six months ago. Mosquitos are horrendous in the park.
 
Two Pine siskins are still at our feeder this morning.

Lots of good birds this weekend in the Oak Openings...
 
* Chuck-will's-widow - See separate post.
* Red crossbill - 2 yesterday and 18 today at the lodge
* Blue grosbeak - Girdham and Reed, this morning
* Brown creeper - singing male at the lodge, both days
* Yellow-breasted chat - at least 3 this morning
* Kentucky warbler - a singing male persists on private property along Old State Line Road
* Connecticut warbler - singing birds in a couple of spots south of Secor Metropark
* Also...Olive-sided flycatcher, plenty of Alder flycatchers, a few Yellow-bellied flycatchers, Red-breasted nuthatch, Henslow's sparrow
 
I'm no doubt missing other good birds found by North Coast Open participants yesterday.

Pretty good morning in OO today.  Highlights:

Alder Flycatcher- Manore immediately north of 64
Blue-headed Vireo- at least one calling in the pine stand on Manore just south of Reed
Louisiana Waterthrush- calling in the wet woods just north of Lou Campbell Prairie
Kentucky Warbler- previously reported bird on Old State Line, singing quite loudly

The flooded area of the field at N Jerome and Monclova Road keeps getting bigger. Shorebird numbers have been low, but it's worth checking. This morning, there were two Short-billed dowitchers; yesterday a Dunlin and some Lesser yellowlegs; Semipalmated plovers and Least sandpipers earlier in the week.

Warblers were darn good in W Lucas Co today - 29 species between the Oak Openings and Andersons Farm in well under a half day of birding. Kentucky, Golden-winged, Mourning, Yellow-throated, and Prothonotary made the list.

This morning, there were excellent numbers of warblers (25 species) between Secor Metropark and Oak Openings Preserve Metropark. Most were feeding high in oak trees. Tennessees were probably the most numerous (estimated 55). There was a singing Kentucky warbler in the woods north of 10923 Old State Line Road, and I had Golden-winged warblers in two spots (both moving with mixed flocks of other warblers).

Red crossbills persist at OO Lodge, and small numbers of Pine siskins are still around. Both species should be observed closely for nesting evidence. The crossbills showed up in the same spot they're being seen almost six months ago. I don't recall such an extended stay (by a long shot) by either crossbill species in our area.

The Crossbills wowed a crowd yesterday as they fed on cones high in the pines on the north edge of the lodge parking lot. Also with the leaves being so late, Yellow-breasted chats were showing well at Kitty Todd.
