Birding Report – 10-2-2022

Hi all

I did part of my normal weekend birding route starting at Rock River WMA where I was treated to a Double-crested Cormorant spectacle (photos soon) at the two o’clock position as you look west from the bridge. The cormorant flock numbered in the four-digit realm (have not counted on my photos yet). They were actively feeding on some type bait fish I presume and had three-digit gulls helping them out. Pretty cool to witness. Rock River also hosted eight Greater Yellowlegs on northside of bridge facing west.

Black Creek WMA adjacent to Saint Albans Beach Park still hosting an immature Black-crowned Night Heron (photo soon) looking north from the bridge.

Over at Saint Albans Beach Park I found a Semipalmated Sandpiper (photos soon) hanging out with seven Killdeer and three Greater Yellowlegs. They were hanging out on the shoreline closer to the Black Creek WMA bridge. Present also were lots of Canada Goose and Ring-billed Gull.

All three locations had active Yellow-rumped Warblers.
