Phillips Landing Trip Report May 30, 2019

June 2, 2019

 We started birding Phillips Landing at 8 a.m. The parking lot and wooded trail yielded both tanagers, 2 yellow-billed cuckoos heard, close looks at eastern wood pewee and Prothonotary warbler in addition to the usual suspects.

We arrived at the Big Field parking area about 10 a.m. and walked the edges where it had been mowed. We first saw a brightly colored, female summer tanager perched on a horizontal branch in good light. Two people saw 2 yellow-billed cuckoos in the same tree with the red-eyed vireo we all heard singing incessantly. A beautiful red-tailed hawk circled overhead.

Our total species count for the trip was 39.
