With the sound of WARBLERS!!!!!!! Dwayne and I did some scouting for next
weekend's CBC meeting in Blowing Rock, NC and were quite pleased with the
results. We had sixteen warbler species with relatively little effort!
What makes it all the better is that the trees aren't leafed out yet and you
can still see the birds as they forage. We visited Altapass Orchard (very
briefly), Linville Falls, Wiseman's View (part of Linville Gorge Wilderness
Area), Boone Fork Wetlands, and Trout Lake. Here's the list of what we had:
Black-throated Blue Warbler (everywhere!)
Black-throated Green Warbler
Yellow-throated Warbler (a little unexpected in some pines at the entrance
to Linville Falls)
Pine Warbler (in the same vicinity as above)
Swainson's Warbler (heard only--but quite well--at Linville Falls)
Pine Siskin (lots!)
Look forward to seeing some of you at the meeting next weekend!!!
