7BY2: Quarterly Report July 12, 2018

Being in Maryland monthly for not-so-great reasons actually helped my quarter, especially when Tim was there too making sure we took some dedicated bird walks. One day we thought we heard a northern saw-whet owl and couldn’t quite believe it. It had been years. But the time of day was wrong. We tentatively put it on the list, but later heard a recording of a black-billed cuckoo and wondered if we’d made a mistake (its call sounding like part of the saw-whet’s). I have retracted this listing. And I wish I knew whether I heard a cuckoo.

Without further ado: belted kingfisher, wood duck, golden-crowned kinglet, white-throated sparrow, long-tailed duck, osprey, killdeer, northern flicker, great-crested cormorant, eastern phoebe, ruby-crowned kinglet, Savannah sparrow, tree swallow, brown-headed cowbird, yellow-bellied sapsucker, eastern towhee, Wilson’s snipe, American woodcock, chipping sparrow, broad-winged hawk, yellow warbler, field sparrow, bobolink, eastern meadowlark, yellow-rumped warbler, common raven, chimney swift, rose-breasted grosbeak, house wren, common yellowthroat, northern parula, blue-gray gnatcatcher, worm-eating warbler, barn swallow, gray catbird, hermit thrush, ovenbird, great-crested flycatcher, green heron, solitary sandpiper, wood thrush, indigo bunting, northern rough-winged swallow, black-and-white warbler, Baltimore oriole, scarlet tanager, red-shouldered hawk, red-eyed vireo, Acadian flycatcher, brown thrasher, blue-winged warbler, prairie warbler, Cooper’s hawk, Carolina chickadee, bay-breasted warbler, chestnut-sided warbler, yellow-bellied flycatcher, warbling vireo, American redstart, eastern kingbird, eastern wood pewee, ruffed grouse, eastern whip-poor-will, snowy egret, great egret, glossy ibis, willet, lesser yellowlegs, cliff swallow, black-throated green warbler, ruby-throated hummingbird, barred owl.

Year-to-date count: 130. (2012: 102. 2013: 162. 2014: 102. 2015: 120. 2016: 104. 2017: 115.)
