July 31 - Bigelow Road

The next morning, Saturday, saw a return to Bigelow Road and I got fantastic views of a male/female pair of these beauties. At times the birds were too close for bins!.
I also got to see 3-4 Boreal Chickadees, a species I had only seen once before back in the winter of 2007. The views this time were much better, and it was much warmer too!

Other highlights today were Yellow-Bellied and Alder Flycatchers, Gray Jays, Red-Breasted Nuthatch and warblers of Nashville, Parula, Magnolia, Yellow-Rumped, American Redstart, Canada ( a NY State bird for me) and sparrows of Lincoln's, White-Throated, and Dark-Eyed Junco, plus Purple Finch .
