Once again, today at around 5ish, I sat down on my back deck and observed a
dicky bird movement go through the yard. I got a Warbling Vireo for my yard
plus an early CAP MAY WARBLER. Their were other warblers
and several Empidonax Flycatchers as well, but nothing noteworthy .
However, I have mentioned this before on this site.
Here, where I live in Harwinton, it is 900 foot elevation at the top
of a very rounded mountain. During the fall migration, I have noticed
movements of birds here in my yard, late in the day, that seem to have followed
travels up the west facing mountain as it sets in the West. I believe this gives
the advantage of being able to search for insect food longer into the afternoon
the trees become dark from the setting sun. Has anyone else seen this phenomena?
I would be pleased to hear from you off site if you wish...Paul Carrier
