Swallow-tailed Kite, Black-necked Stilt Continue

The Swallow-tailed Kite was again soaring over the Beanery and nearby environs at 12:30pm. A nice hawk flight (by spring standards) had developed as well, with as many as 8 Red-tailed Hawks visible at one time, as well as 3 Broad-winged Hawks, a few Cooper's and a single Sharp-shinned Hawk, and a Merlin. The Black-necked Stilt was reported from the Meadows "plover pond" this morning.

A little time spent at Beaver Swamp WMA this afternoon produced multiple Prothonotary and Yellow-throated Warblers, as well as two juvenile Bald Eagles.
