10 June 2012

I ended this study site’s recordings with 31 MacGillivray’s Warblers. They were very numerous and now back in their regular breeding habitat of Aspen stands with dense undergrowth. The last bird, MM31 was in a mix of willow and aspen stand (see photo below). I also was lucky to take some interesting videos including a MacGillivray’s Warbler male singing (MM30), a Sandhill Crane on the nest with a recently hatched chick, the red-shafted version of our Northern Flicker with the red moustache (we have the yellow-shafted with a black moustache in New Hampshire).
