Mad Birders enjoy Lincoln Mountain Walk

Posted on Wednesday 10 May 2006

Eight Mad Birders met to explore the Lincoln Mountain area
this morning. Many thanks to Bill Martin for being our leader and
guide. We started by checking out a great yard close to Bill’s
house. We had great looks at Eastern Phoebe, Baltimore Oriole,
Chestnut-sided Warbler, Chipping Sparrows.

Across the road we chased (and finally found, thanks to Bill’s
persistence and Jack and Helen’s sharp eyes) a very vocal Ovenbird
in the woods. An unidentified warbler was singing nearby, but we
never found it.

Three of us ventured to the top of Lincoln Gap – it’s still
early spring there with no green yet. A Winter Wren was singing
nonstop. We also heard Black-throated Blue and Black-throated Green
Warblers, had a good look at a Black-and-white Warbler. A lot of
time could be spent birding the parking lots at the top of the

Hope to see many of you at Blueberry Lake on Sunday, Mother’s
Day morning walk. Meet at Chamber at 7:30 AM or Blueberry Lake,
south end at 7:45 AM. Neal Harrington will be our leader.
