I've been debating
whether or not to bother creating a trip report
for the Kennedy Woods-Forest Park/Tower Grove Park SLAS field trip Saturday. We saw only a few migrants...few and far between.
Kennedy Woods still pretty much looks like it's the dead of winter, so unless a bird is planning on spending the summer here, I guess they're just not interested. Give it a couple of weeks and I think the birding will be much improved.
However, we had a large and pleasant group of about 30 people who joined us for this trip. And I think everyone enjoyed getting out and sharing our common purpose.
Here is a partial list of encountered species, as far as I recall:
Barred Owl (prior to the official start) FP
Scarlet Tanager FP
Black-throated Green Warbler TGP
Ruby-throated Hummingbird TGP
Red-headed Woodpecker FP
Ruby-crowned Kinglet FP, TGP
Hermit Thrush TGP
Cedar Waxwing TGP
N. Parula FP
Palm Warbler FP
Swamp Sparrow FP
... and the usual
kind of birds.
