For those interested, this week's drive-by showed that the Bell's Vireos remain in the fence-line shrubbery below the landfill, east of the wet areas. As of late morning yesterday, there was much vigorous vocalizing, and even some cooperative viewing.Over background noise from the landfill, there seemed to be a Dicksissel voice, but it didn't call more than once, and none were seen at the time. However, the species has favored the site in the past, so another check may reveal its presence.The Brown Thrasher, further west in the fence-line, was more quiet than usual and a bit secretive, unlike the Flycatcher that perched up occasionally. Perhaps nesting is in progress, as the Thrashers showed up earlier last month. There was no sight or sound of the male Pheasant that had been along the road and fence line since April. Song Sparrows are numerous as usual, and Clay-coloreds in evidence, but there are hopes of finding more of the grass-loving sparrows on the hillside above the fence line, as the landfill is now growing more cover foliage there. A trip in earlier hours, especially on a Sunday, when landfill business is inactive might make it easier to detect the likes of Grasshopper Sparrow.Linda Whyte_______________________________________________
