The Late Show – June 13, 2023

Here we are, almost two full weeks into June, and we’re still getting a trickle of migrants. Avian activity is dominated by the local breeding birds, but these bona fide migrants were at Montrose on June 13

Ruddy Turnstone
Semipalmated Plover
Semipalmated Sandpiper
Least Flycatcher
Yellow-bellied Flycatcher
Blackburnian Warbler
Chestnut-sided Warbler

What’s interesting is that the first southbound summer migrants will be showing up in just a few weeks. There almost isn’t a time when birds aren’t moving in one direction or the other, and Montrose Point is one of the best places to witness this near overlap in migrations.

Hooded Warbler and Northern Mockingbird, June 2, 2013

Montrose wasn’t very active this morning, as is to be expected for the first week in June, but I had a few goodies. A male Hooded Warbler was singing in the Magic Hedge. I never saw him but others did. I also had a Northern Mockingbird in the willows in the dunes. Other birds seen or heard include Semipalmated Plover, Yellow-bellied and Willow Flycatchers, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Veery, 8 migrating Blue Jays, Wilson’s, Magnolia, and Chestnut-sided Warblers, Ovenbird, and American Redstart.
