Disappointing morning at Marsh Creek State Park

I took some time this morning to walk around Marsh Creek’s trails in the hope of finding some warblers and other migrants. To my disappointment, the woods were very quiet with scarcely anything singing other than Gray Catbirds, White-eyed and Red-eyed Vireos. Blue-gray Gnatcatchers have really thinned out and it see like the the ones still here are breeding pairs.

The only warbler that wasn’t on territory were the Yellow-rumped Warblers, which nest in northern PA. Other warblers seen were several Ovenbirds, a Common Yellowthroat, Yellow Warbler and a Prairie Warbler.

Hopefully this weekend brings another big flight of migrants into the area.
