Hi All,

A birdy morning on the grounds yielded little apart from a White-crowned Sparrow and a partially albino Yellow-rumped Warbler that displayed a pure white collar - giving an initial impression somewhat like a Stonechat! The only other bird of note was a pretty late Scarlet Tanager (any other tanager species would have been more welcome).

As far as hawks were concerned it was a fairly weird flight today - slow in the morning and only really picking up late afternoon when things were incredibly high. Highlights were a Northern Goshawk which showed early and 2 Golden Eagles one subadult and one juvie both in the same hour.
