Radnor Lake State Natural Area
Davidson Co., TN
2017 May 2
This Tuesday morning I went again to Radnor Lake to look for migrants.
Jan Shaw and Joel Bruyere also decided to visit Radnor again today.
Although yesterday at Radnor was very windy after the front, it had
the advantage of a major migration and so was by far the best morning
of the spring. But although the WILLETs and BLACK TERN of yesterday
were gone today, the number of warblers almost certainly exceeded
yesterday. The MOURNING WARBLER heard and seen yesterday just before
Long Bridge along the Lake Trail, was again in exactly the same spot
today in a dense thicket just to the left of the trail only a couple
yards away. Today it was more vocal for a while and I again got
decent looks at it at or below eye level. I finished the morning
with 21 warbler species, nearly all of them seen and there were
several additional species that I either did not hear or that were
seen earlier by my companions. Additional warblers that I saw included
WILSON'S, CAPE MAY, N. WATERTHRUSH, while GREY-CHEEKED THRUSH and
VEERY were also found before Long Bridge.
