Today’s exciting finds…

Today, there were light winds from the south again, and the temperature rose fast.  The flight of Blue Jays Cedar Waxwings continues, today 44 Blue Jays & 510 Cedar Waxwings were counted.  But a few of the species that were found today were quite exciting!

One species was a new one for the year at this site, a Henslow’s Sparrow.

At 6:17 A.M., a flock of 10 Red Crossbills flew to the west.  This is now the largest count of them that has ever occurred in the Month of May in Indiana.  There haven’t been numbers like this this late in the spring since the last crossbill irruption in the winter of 2012-2013.

At 7:20 A.M., a Western Kingbird flew right overhead going west.

Overall 56 species were observed today.

Here is today’s complete list…
