Glassboro Woods and vicinity – May 28, 2017

From Sandra Keller

I filled in for Annie who couldn’t make it. It was like old times – exploring these areas as we birded by ear and searched for Kentucky Warbler. We had excellent looks and listens to Hooded, Prothonotary, Worm-eating, Acadian, Louisiana Waterthrush, etc. Red-shouldered and Broad-winged Hawks were enjoyed. What was surprising was no Scarlet Tanagers singing. And on that note – we could not track a Kentucky down in 2 different birding locations that we tried. I believe there is more to it than the birds being quiet at this time in May. Has the population dropped? Are these two areas – Glassboro and Elephant Swamp – no longer prime areas for them? I doubt the latter question. I am concerned and will be hitting these areas in June to see if I can track Kentuckys down.
