Greetings -- Spent part of the morning birding at Burr Oak Woods,
primarily on the north end of the property and compiled a decent list of
37 species of birds in 2 hours. Highlights include the followiing:

Common Snipe
Sharp-shinned Hawk
Yellow-rumped Warblers (flocks)
Sedge Wrens (lots)
Marsh Wren
House Wren
Palm Warblers
Eastern Phoebe
Eastern Bluebird
Ruby-crowned Kinglets
Clay-colored Sparrow
White-throated Sparrows
Swamp Sparrow
Lincoln Sparrow
Song Sparrow
Indigo Bunting
Brown Creeper
Eastern Meadowlark
Red-breasted Nuthatch

Of the birds, there were great numbers of bluebirds, phoebes,
yellow-rumped warblers, white-throated sparrows and sedge wrens. There
were also large numbers of northern flickers both feeding and flying
over. It was definitely a birdy morning after the passing of the front
-- watch for raptors!

Good Birding

Craig Hensley
