Here are a few notes and my eBird list from the Madison Audubon Baxter's Hollow field trip held this morning. Our group enjoyed some of the best views I've ever had of YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO and BLACK-BILLED CUCKOO - what a treat! A HOODED WARBLER was heard near the first bridge. Further down we heard a singing CERULEAN WARBLER and then got a good view of it right after it finished chasing an another warbler. Very cooperative ACADIAN FLYCATCHERS were seen and heard throughout. We heard a song that *may* have been a WORM-EATING WARBLER at the usual spot, but from past experiences with CHIPPING SPARROWS at Baxter's, I know better to call it without actually seeing it. Other warblers included BAY-BREASTED WARBLER, CANADA WARBLER, BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER, BLUE-WINGED WARBLER, BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER, and LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH. In the open area beyond the signs we found a couple ALDER FLYCATCHERS. Songs of VEERY, WOOD THRUSH, and WINTER WREN rendered a calming mood while we searched for our quarry. Biting insects were not a problem; no black flies and I got only one mosquito bite without using repellent.
