The birds of summer

 Those weird-looking creatures? Summer is when many fledglings appear and songbirds go quiet to rearing theirs

In the last column about spring migration I mentioned that in June birders would be looking for small songbirds like warblers, vireos and flycatchers from the east that get lost during migration. Well, several of these were found. First a least flycatcher appeared in the Smith River riparian area along Bailey Road near Fort Dick, then a red-eyed vireo was singing in the cottonwoods along the Klamath River in Klamath Glen. One thing led to another, and while enjoying the beautiful song of the red-eyed, a plumbeous vireo started singing in the same area, which was only the third record of this species in the county. Two eastern warblers also showed up here, a black-and-white and a chestnut-sided warbler. Finding one rare bird somewhere sometimes leads to more rare birds being found in the same area, simply because the area gets more coverage because of that rare bird being there and, consequently, more attention is paid to other birds there.
