September, 2014 Bird Sightings at Fermilab

Monday, September 15, 2014

It has been a remarkable week for birds on site. On Sunday the 7th a juvenile Yellow-crowned Night-Heron was found on site. It spent all day Monday near Swan Lake where it was very cooperative for the many who came to see it. Later in the week I nearly ran over a Least Bittern that was sitting on the road right by the spot where the heron had been. Unfortunately, it flew into the nearby cattails before I thought to take a photo. On Friday a juvenile Peregrine Falcon was photographed on the 14th floor ledges of the High Rise. On Sunday A.E.Sea produced a juvenile Bald Eagle, a Black Tern, and a Nelson's Sparrow and today a male Black-throated Blue Warbler was photographed sitting on a bench by the east entrance to the High Rise.
