Allsopp & Murray Parks, Murray Lock & Dam 9/27/2009

After getting up at 3 yesterday to go to Boxley, I decided to sleep in (till 5) today and bird local.  I visited Allsopp Park first, starting at 7:30, then visited Murray Park and finally Murray Lock and Dam.  The highlights were as follows:

  • At Allsopp Park, I saw a Wilson’s Warbler.
  • At Murray Park, I saw an Osprey, an Acadian Flycatcher (one week late), a molting juvenile European Starling, and a 1st winter female Common Yellowthroat.
  • At Murray Lock and Dam, I saw a kettle of about 150 American White Pelicans circling over and drifting slowly down the river.
