Migration Workshop 1

Jackson Park Hendersonville, NC

A nice group of 12 folks gathered at Jackson Park in Hendersonville, NC for the first Ventures migration workshop of fall 2013. Despite the warm and muggy conditions, the birds still showed. We got excellent views of 3 Pileated Woodpeckers that were very cooperative and stayed out in full view for several minutes. Eastern Wood-Peewees were calling and also offered great views.

Soon after, we found what turned out to be the largest warbler flock of the day. Multiple Magnolia, Chestnut-sided, and Blackburnian Warblers, along with American Redstarts, Northern Parulas, and others gave us a chance to study the differences in fall plumage. We also got good looks at a few vireo species as well for comparison. After a great lunch, we went back into the park for a little more birding, but the mosquitoes outnumbered the birds so we called it a day. We ended up with 40 species including 12 warbler species and 3 vireo species.
