Bob Lacker and I found two Bell’s Vireos along the bike trail at Ellis Lake this morning. One was singing from atop a honeylocust nine telephone poles west of the parking circle. A second Bell’s Vireo was singing a short distance away, roughly in front of the bench along the path edge. We confirmed that they are indeed two individuals.

Also interesting was a Brown Creeper working the dead ash trees in the Ellis Lake ice pond. It’s interesting to have a Creeper this late hanging around in suitable breeding habitat. It is still likely a migrant, but it’ll be worth keeping a lookout. Good stuff! Take care.
