Bird list for the week of May 14-18, 2012
Here's how we keep our weekly tallies at West Campus:
|Panel 1 - top, middle and bottom|
|Panel 2, top, middle and bottom|
The second panel, shown in the above three images, is a mix from common year-round species (Rock Pigeon) to early spring migrants (Barn Swallow). Some of the spring species just pass through on migration and are not seen again until fall, so these will be removed from the list in a few weeks time, when the likelihood of seeing them diminishes.
|Panel 3, top, middle and bottom|
The records I keep here on the blog do not include these daily observations, so these data are lost. However, the weekly tallies reflect the frequency and duration of our birding outings, inasmuchas we have to be in the right place at the right time. If we don't get out much, we don't see the birds. The Blackpoll Warbler might have been out there on Wednesday - and Friday too, but Thursday was the day Lynn was there and saw the bird - so it goes on the list for the week.
