  1. Trey and I went south this morning and found 5 Upland Sandpipers at thesouth end of 217th Ave. south of 9336. From 9336 (main road into ENP), turnsouth onto 217 (it’s dirt) until it intersects with a small paved road. TheUppies were about 150 yards to the southwest from this spot.

    We had acouple of Redstarts, Prairies, and one Yellow Warbler at Lucky Hammock, butthe birding was pretty anemic overall.


  2. Hi All,

    Between 1:00 and 2:30 Friday afternoon an impressive 61 Northern Rough-winged Swallows were observed in small loose groups of up to 7 individuals per group. What makes this more interesting to me is the fact that no other swallow species were seen and ALL these birds were moving in a NORTHERLY direction!!!!

    Good Birding!

  3. A hot humid 45 minute walk through the Mangrove Bay Neighborhood of NE St. Pete yielded only the same pair of Yellow-throated Warblers that have been here for 6 days now. I was able to wring out my shirt and water a few plants upon arriving home. At 7:05 PM after the thunderstorms had passed a group of 13 Barn Swallows fed as the migrated south.
