10/2 - Groton, Bluff Point -- BAY-BREASTED WARBLER, YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER, PURPLE FINCH
As Dave predicted, it was not a good morning flight at Bluff Point this morning, especially with a heavy band of rain passing through at prime time. The most abundant migrant was Tufted Titmouse with 34 flying out of the hot corner. Also notable was the first sapsucker of the season. Two White-breasted Nuthatches were also migrating. A small trickle of warblers (25) came through before and after the rain and one feeding flock inside added to what little diversity there was. 40 warblers of 8 species and two Baltimore Orioles.
