9/1/11 6:00-9:00 am - Cove Island Wildlife Sanctuary in part with Patrick Dugan and Dave Winston, fairly quiet, but some nice species: Warbling Vireo (1), Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Mourning Warbler (1), American Redstart (pair), Wilson's Warbler (1), Northern Waterthrush (2), Yellow-breasted Chat (1), Least Flycatcher (1), 600 Bobolinks in multiple groups flying south.
Also 8/31/11 4:30-6:30 pm - Quaker Ridge, Greenwich Audubon, in part with Luke Tiller, there was a nice movement of Common Nighthawks and Chimney Swifts, many directly overhead. I wasn't counting but estimate at least 60. The area was still without power which apparently might not be restored until next week.
