In Search of the Chestnut-sided Warbler

Donna's Garden
O.K. I admit it. I really wish I had seen the Chestnut-sided warbler that Bev saw yesterday so I went back to the park this morning. Unfortunately, I never did see it.

I meant to mention yesterday, that the grapes are out and that should be attracting various birds.

Today, I will only mention what I didn't see yesterday which includes: a foraging deer, chimney swifts, three hummingbirds, a pair of red-bellied woodpeckers, cedar waxwings, mourning doves, house finches and a family of chipping sparrows.

We have some exciting fall birdwalks scheduled at the park and more to come. Check out the new listings at:


  1. Didn't think it was worthy of a post but still wanted to share: I think I may have seen a cuckoo at the park yesterday! I couldn't get a good enough look at it the sun was behind the birch tree that it was in but that tail was so long that it is hard to think it was anything other than a cuckoo.

  2. I've seen one there once but it was across the river and I've heard that they've been seen there from time to time so I bet you did! Cool!!!!!!
    Thanks for letting me know.
