Bird Walk at Cromwell Valley Park

During the CAS field trip this morning, Denis Muller and I found a Vesper Sparrow at 11:30 in the field behind the kiln, first seen along the path and then perched on a branch--not far from the big tree (a sycamore) that stands alone (with a picnic table). I had probably seen it earlier, around 7:30, but didn't get a good look then. We had 57 species, and a lot of work and time yielded 11 warbler species. 
Some notable finds:
1. VESPER SPARROW (1, we got all the field marks, larger, white outer tail feathers, eye ring, streaking on chest and head, outlined cheek patch)
2. Warbling Vireo (2, late on eBird but probably normal for here)
3. Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker (6, 4 in one tree)
4. Philadelphia Vireo (1)
5. Ruby -Crowned Kinglet (10+)
6. White-Throated Sparrow (1)
7. 11 warbler species (ovenbird, blacknwhite, yellowthroat, redstart, parula, magnolia, blackburnian, chestnut-sided (Dennis), black-throated blue, yellow-rumped (fos), black-throated green)

Best Birding Wishes,
