Plenty to enjoy again on Corvo today!

Another busy report from Corvo’s group of 30+ remaining birders today, with a total of at least 12 different American landbirds reported. About half of these concerns new individuals within the following species - Ovenbird (2), Grey-cheeked Thrush (2), Yellow-billed Cuckoo (1) and Scarlet Tanager (1). 

In addition, the trio Swainson’s Thrush, Blackpoll and Bay-breasted warblers were still performing well in the same juniper field at lower part of Lighthouse Valley (third consecutive day) and the two first-winter males Hooded Warbler were also relocated at Cancelas (fifth day) and between Cantinho/Lighthouse Valley (second day).
