Green-cheeked Conure Found at Celery Farm

The Rob Fanning Report 052810

   Rob sez: "Thursday morning a frequently singing ACADIAN FLYCATCHER was hanging around the Brotherton Bridge area. It was moving around a lot and was on both sides of the bridge--but it's loud pit-SEE call enabled me to track it down several times for some decent looks.

   "This is only the 2nd (or possibly 3rd?) record for the CF--the first back on 6/19/06 found by Fred Weber--showing that this notoriously late migrant can pop up well into June.

    "The other highlight was a sharp-looking WHITE-THROATED SPARROW at Greenway. No migrant warblers heard or seen today..."
   Full list follows. (Thanks, Rob!)
