Bruce Peterjohn and I started our Hundred on the Hook day for April at 2:30 am this morning with a slight breeze blowing. The first stop for the day was the Broadkill Marsh at the end of Oyster Rocks Road where our first bird was a calling Seaside Sparrow. Soon afterwards a Whip-poor-will started to call, followed immediately by several Clapper Rails. We then moved north to Broadkill Road, where the wind began to pick up, but it did not stop us from hearing, Virginia Rail, Sora, and two Barn Owls calling in the marsh. We finished out the rest of the night-time birding with Great-horned Owl, Barred Owl and Chuck-will's Widow calling near the entrance gate. By now the winds were beginning to build to 10-15 mph.

Our daylight birding began at the Headquarter's Area, where we had a flyover Common Nighthawk as well as several Common Loons. Other highlights included, 8 Little Blue Herons at the end of the Dike Trail, White-crowned Sparrows at the garden area, and Yellow, Yellow-throated, Pine, and Prothonotary Warbler, Northern Waterthrush and Yellow-breasted Chat. On the way to the Pine Grove Trail we picked up a Blue-winged Warbler at the intersection of the entrance road and then road to Turkle pond. At the cul-de-sac at the start of the Trail we found an early Eastern Wood-Pewee and Black-and-White Warbler. Next on the agenda was Deep Branch Road which yielded a calling Great Crested Flycatcher and Grasshopper Sparrow. Also along Deep Branch Road we spotted at least 6 Great Blue Herons gathering nest materials in the fields and then flying away into the pine along the road with the material. After Deep Branch we headed to the State Wildlife Area to conclude our morning songbird agenda, with the highlights being Pileated Woodpecker, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Northern Parula and Scarlet Tanager.

After the State Area we birded Prime Hook Road, the Slaughter Beach Tidal Flats, and the Bay at the southern end of Slaugher Beach. Hightlights for this portion of the day included Semipalmated Plover along Prime Hook Road, and a Cooper's Hawk chasing a Northern Harrier above the tidal flats. We left the Slaughter Beach area at 11:30 am to head for lunch with 120 species for the day.

After lunch the winds picked up to 15-25 mph, which made birding difficult. We birded for 6 additional hours adding an additional 8 species: Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Black-necked Stilt, Semipalmated Sandpiper, Meadowlark, and Saltmarsh Sharp-tailed Sparrow along Broadkill Road, and Brown Thrasher and a single female Black Scoter at Prime Hook Beach.

We ended the day at Oyster Rocks at 6:00 pm with a total of 128 species. Biggest misses, American Woodcock and Eastern Screech-Owl. This outing brought our cumulative 'Hundred on the Hook Day' total for the year to 183 species.
