An Ingham Outing

Having been cooped up inside studying for the GRE lately, I decided to take a break and see what Fenner Nature Center had to offer. Hopes were for a Philly Vireo, but it wasn't in the cards. I quickly found one flock of migrants including Warblers such as Black-throated Green, Tennessee, Nashville, American Redstart, Ovenbird, Magnolia, Blackpoll and Black and White present. Also, in the same area were a duo of Blue-headed Vireos, Red-eyed Vireo, House Wren, two Brown Thrashers, two Eastern Phoebes, an Eastern Wood-Pewee and a few White-throated Sparrows.

The gates were open for the Kenneth A. Hope Soccer Complex off Aurelius Road, so I decided to look for Buff-breasted Sandpiper. No go on that bird, but I did come across a pair of Eastern Meadowlarks that were both calling and even singing. Too bad they weren't Western Meadowlarks.
