I birded Lake Mattamuskeet NWR, Thanksgiving afternoon and the
following Friday morning. My primary reason for birding there was to
try for an Orange-crowned Warbler which, was the last warbler species
I needed to complete my quest of obtaining all 38 species of
regularly-occuring, eastern warblers, in the same year. At the
recommendation of several individuals I birded the southern end
of the causeway and, special thanks to Doug DeNeve for suggesting
the road leading into the refuge headquarters.
We arrived about 3 in the afternoon and I immediately began birding the
causeway. There wasn't much stirring there and the mosquitoes were
close to being unbearable so, I headed over to the refuge road. An hour
of dilligent searching produced ten warbler species including the
Orange-crowned that I, so-badly, wanted. Friday morning my wife
and I birderd the refuge with local birders Karen Baldwin and Ernie
In additon to several other species, I located another Orange-crowned and
Ernie and I turned up warbler species number eleven, a Wilson's. Friday
afternoon we headed over to the Outer Banks where I got some additional
birding in the remainder of the weekend. If anyone wants additional
let me know.
