Emma Treadwell Thacher Nature Center, Thompson's Lake 6/27/09

Hudson-Mohawk Bird Club had a field trip to Thompson's Lake on Saturday. The habitat is elevated, dry open woodlands. Once again, the parking area (becoming a familiar theme) is a busy area. House Wrens frequent the area, an Eastern Phoebe has a nest on a nearby building, and Cedar Waxwings and Eastern Towhees foraged through the taller trees. A Blackburnian Warbler was heard and briefly observed in some spruce trees.

Over the grassier areas, tree swallows were the most common species, but no bluebirds were seen. Highlight was a female Bobolink hanging from the grass stems. Four species of Sparrow (Chipping, Field, Savannah and Song) were seen.
