Bald Knob NWR 4/9/2011

Karen Holliday and I made the second in a series of trips to BKNWR Saturday.   In a previous post I explained the survey and so won’t do so again.  This time the temperature was warmer and much windier, gusting to about 20MPH.   The total numbers of birds were down from last week, but hopefully that will turn around soon.   In the 3.5 hours we were there, we saw 43 species of bird including the following first of season birds (for me at least):  Peregrine Falcon, Black-necked Stilt, Willet, and Prothonotary Warbler. Outside of the survey, I also saw first of season Green Heron and Chimney Swift.
