Yellow Warbler female 20110511

Mary Lou and I birded Aurora West preserve this morning and saw a Black-billed Cuckoo. We also saw and photographed a Willow Flycatcher and a Swainson's Thrush near the model airplane field. I'm pretty sure I also heard an Alder Flycatcher in the Cottonwood grove in the SE section of the preserve, but could not confirm with a sighting. Yellow Warblers were abundant and were gathering nesting material, and several Field Sparrows were singing. Had a Tennessee and an Orange-crowned Warbler, a Northern Waterthrush and two redstarts. We tallied 32 species. Visit
