(Please excuse the late post; obligations necessitate choosing between
birding and posting, and we know what wins.)
A daylong trip Saturday to the E. Cannon River Wilderness and
Nerstrand Woods State Park yielded great looks at the following, among
redstart, magnolia, yellow, c. yellow-throat, golden-wing, blue-wing,
cerulean, Cape May (seen by two of the party), chestnut-sided, palm,
and hooded warbler; Tennessee and Nashvilles (heard only); ovenbirds;
house wrens; blue-gray gnatcatchers; scarlet tanager; yellow-bellied
sapsucker; Swainson's and gray-cheeked thrushes; bluebirds; veery;
indigo bunting; E. towhee; rose-breasted grosbeak; great-crested
flycatcher; catbird; cuckoo (heard only, from across the river);
warbling, yellow-throated, and blue-headed vireos (heard); Cooper's
and red-tail hawks.
The prairie burn area was heavily populated with thrushes.The hooded
warbler was beyond the entry-ravine, very near the second boardwalk.
It flew low, across the path just in front of us, landing on a low
branch just a couple of feet away from the trail. It chipped, never
sang, but gave excellent, though brief, looks.
The other highlight was the sapsucker (male) entering a cavity. He
went all the way in, then poked out his head to stare back at
us---most charming turn-about. En route there were a meadowlark,
shrike, and E. phoebe. At Nerstrand we did spot the red-headed
woodpecker in the main campground, fleetingly, as he took off into the
woods. Altogether, it was a great day.
