July 100 Species Update

Armleder Park, California Woods, East End

A goal has been reached. This last Sunday turned out a lot better than planned, with plenty of new birds to take me over the 100 species for the month of July. The new birds were

  • Blue Grosbeak

  • Black & White Warbler
  • Spotted Sandpiper
  • Least Sandpiper
  • Semipalmated Sandpiper
  • Orchard Oriole
  • Hairy Woodpecker
  • Northern Flicker
  • Bank Swallow
  • Brown-headed Cowbird
  • White-eyed Vireo

And with one full weekend left I’m still planning on going out and padding this total of 103 birds. Even if I excluded the 3 species that were specific to the Great Smoky Mountains, those being the Swainson’s Warbler, Dark-eyed Junco, and the Black-throated Blue Warbler, I’d still have 100 birds. Challenge complete. However there are still a few more warbler species that I’ll try to pick up probably this Sunday at Shawnee Lookout. So stayed tuned for yet another update.
