The bird walk at Silver Mines (Madison Co), held this past Saturday, turned
up a few good species including:
pied-billed grebe
snow goose
osprey
bald eagles (1 mature & 1 immature)
broadwing hawks (4 birds, displaying & calling)
chimney swift
great-crested flycatcher
n. rough winged swallow
cliff swallows (nesting)
ruby-crowned kinglet
red-eyed vireo
northern parula
yellow-thr warbler
pine warbler

Highlights included watching a bald eagle chase a snow goose
(unsuccessfully), and finding a phoebe on her nest.  A stop at a nearby
great blue heron rookery found at least 7 of the 17 nests (that could be
seen) occupied.
