- Not Used
Found yesterday by Esme. In the wooded edge just nw of last parking. Very vocal, giving sharp peet call. Looked short tailed, large headed, uniform yellow below, flipping tail upwards. Edit (18 Sept): I returned to this spot and encountered a very similar bird giving this call and appearing nearly identical... and then proceeded to see numerous others in the park that were similar. The closest several photos in this series have troubled me as they look a bit too large-billed and brown-backed for Yellow-bellied, and with today's experience, I am reluctantly changing the ID to Acadian for this bird. My first few views did give me a very Y-b feel, but later views of (presumably) the same bird make me think it was all Acadian.
