My list has now climbed to 98 species, which includes 13 warbler species. The Nicolet Breeding Bird Survey was this weekend. It was a blast! I don't know the exact number of species seen (Bob Howe does though!), but I do know of some of the highlights: Connecticut Warbler (north of Blackjack Springs Wilderness Area), Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Whip-poor-will, and I'm sure others I'm forgetting. Our survey group didn't hear any of these, but some of the highlights for us included at least 4 Mourning Warblers singing in one spot, Winter Wren (heard by another in our group), and Bobolinks and Eastern Meadowlarks--these species are hard to come by up here due to limited habitat--on Highway 70 between Eagle River and Florence. Savannah Sparrows and Brown Thrashers also found here. I added an American Kestrel today as well. And I have finally figured out what that unidentified warbler song was: Blackburnian Warbler. They're pretty common up here. But there's always some other new bird call I hear and don't know...on to the CD! Good birding, Alyssa DeRubeis Eagle River, Vilas Co. #################### You received this email because you are subscribed to the Wisconsin Birding Network (Wisbirdn).
