In simply 2 days the mix of songbirds at Frick Park transformed from warblers to yeast infections and also sparrows.

On Friday 14 October Charity Kheshgi and also I discovered 3 north parulas ( Setophaga americana) along 9 Mile Perform At Frick Park. eBird stated they deserved an Uncommon Bird Alert. Charity obtained pictures of all 3, revealed in the slide show listed below with 3 pictures of each. 2 of them are really simple to distinguish due to the fact that they go to the extremes of brilliant vs. light shades.

On Saturday evening movement was extreme which frequently indicates that all the birds leave Pittsburgh. Rather, on cool Sunday early morning we discovered a brand-new mix of songbirds consisting of those visualized listed below.

There were much more American robins [50 instead of 7] and also white-thoated sparrows ( Zonotrichia albicollis) [36 instead of none] and also we also listened to a fox sparrow ( Passerella iliaca) (instance listed below). I desire we might have seen it.

At the same time we’re still waiting on dark-eyed juncos however not the snow that includes them.
