September 24 – Day 11, St. Paul AND Another New Bird!

The birds, they are a-changin’ here on St. Paul. Today was a beautiful, nearly calm, sunny day. We spent much of our time either tromping through the wild celery or walking the quarry roads. And we had birds!





In addition to the usual birds, a couple of RED-FLANKED BLUETAILS (one at the quarry and one along the road past Webster House), another Sky Lark (most likely the mystery bird seen 2 days ago), a Blackpoll Warbler, a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, a Swainson’s Thrush, a Warbling Vireo and five Bramblings were found and seen by the group of birders on the island.

Photos below of perched up birds below: one of the Red-flanked Bluetails in silhouette (the other was seen better but I did not get a photograph of it), a Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch, a Pacific Wren singing, a Brambling and a Warbling Vireo.

Tomorrow I am scheduled to leave St. Paul in the afternoon. Maybe another bird before then?
