Recap- Inglis Island Field Trip
10 of us came out for this morning's field trip to Inglis Island. Each time we go there we say, "we should come here more often." Permission has been freely given us to cross the dam and drive about 5 miles around the island. Several Indigo Buntings greeted us on our first stop with the appearance of a Scarlet Tanager. The area was very active. As we then drove down the canopied trail, the Kinglets, Catbirds, Phoebes, and Vireos gave us a show. Warblers were not lacking either. We had 7 species including the Redstarts, Magnolia and Black-throated Green. Northern Harrier, Sharp-shinned, and a Peregrine Falcon made an appearance. We have seen the Peregrine on other occasions on the island. The one surprise was a Great Crested Flycatcher that was calling, because they should be gone by now. Our total of 62 species was a winner. The complete list can be seen at this ebird checklist link.
