Gillam and Allsopp Parks 4/28/2011

Taking Thursday morning off, I decided to hit Gillam Park which I hadn’t been to in about 11 days (a long time during spring migration).  I arrived at 7:20 and started down the main trail.  Of course after all the rain, the back side was flooded so it didn’t take as long to walk as usual.  The bird count seemed low to me with only 26 species for the morning but I did manage to see Chestnut-sided Warbler, Hooded Warbler, Lincoln’s Sparrow, Summer Tanager, Baltimore Oriole, Orchard Oriole, plus first of season Magnolia Warbler, Kentucky Warbler, and Philadelphia Vireo. According to Dan, Philadelphia Vireo is a new bird for the park.
