Species Count – Peach Hill Park on 05/14/12

Orchard Oriole (juvenile)

This is the final day of my species count series to coincide with the spring bird migration.  Most of the birds have migrated through and many of our summer residents are here.

Once again, the white-eyed vireo was present at the park and gave us a great view today.  He wasn’t the only highlight either, with two blackpoll warblers, a blackburnian warbler, willow flycatchers, and this juvenile orchard oriole.

In total, 48 species of bird were seen or heard.  Read on for the full sighting list.
