Now my list has leaped to 112. Here are some recent highlights: 6/16--Another Red-bellied Woodpecker heard at a different site (likely in Forest Co.) 6/17--Wood Thrush and a pair of Trumpeter Swans (at a waterfowl area in the national forest in Forest Co. near the Oneida Co. border) 6/18--Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Winter Wren, and another pair of Trumpeter Swans (Lower Ninemile Lake on Vilas and Oneida Co. border) 6/22--Canada Warbler and 1-2 Winter Wrens (two separate sites likely in Forest Co.) 6/21+22--Located 3 single Trumpeter Swans (likely in Forest Co.) 6/23--Best bird of all was a Black-throated Blue Warbler heard singing today. It was either in Forest or Florence County, and I believe it was near Long Lake. There was a BBS Survey post right by where I heard this guy, which read 563 or something similar. As for the Trumpeter Swans, so far I've seen 3 pairs and 3 single birds in the area up where I've been working, which seems encouraging for this species. I've now also heard two separate Red-bellied Woodpeckers, which likely suggests that this species is expanding their range northward, as a lot of you know already. My warbler species count is now at 14, so I still have a ways to go. A Hooded Warbler would be a great bird to see up here! If anyone is planning on heading over to relocate them on Friday, please let me know. Thanks, and good birding!
