This morning, my son and I went over to the previously mentioned location on
the southeast shore of Cherokee Lake and easily found the adult, male
Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, which put on quite a show with its spontaneous,
aerial acrobatics, harassment of an American Crow in the area, and close
approaches/perching for photos. There were also many other species in the
area, so it was an overall fruitful effort.
This evening, between 7:50pm and 8:00pm, I had some great visitors bathing in
my stream outside the kitchen window. Although most all of the migrant
warblers have moved through as of this late date, a female Kentucky Warbler and
beautiful male Canada Warbler both took baths this evening, which hopefully
means they’re breeding in the woods behind the house. There was also a
Swainson’s Thrush bathing in the stream, which also seems a bit late to me, but
I’m sure it will not be breeding anywhere close to here.
