Groan. YR Warblers. Time to get to Bluff Point one more time. Fall Migration's almost over!
There is one event I'm really looking forward to, however. In the next 7-10 days, Lighthouse willl have an 11-hour day of 1500+ diurnal raptors, comprising 12-13 species, some of them at shoulder level. Fun!

This morning I had a mini fallout at Sherwood Island in Westport just east of the nature center. I had a minimum of 75 Yellow-rumped Warblers and 75 Goldfinches in the trees,in the bushes, in the grass and on the ground. They were in a feeding frenzy flitting about the trees in the area.Very cool to see and hear.
