Another good day of birding! The season has definitely switched to sparrows now with 11 species observed (including Towhee and Junco).
Greenwich Audubon- 11 species of sparrow with highlights being --- FOF Fox sparrow, 6 WC sparrows including 3 adults, 7 or so Lincoln's sparrows (seems like a good year for them).
1----OC Warbler giving great views while feeding on Goldenrod throughout the day.
The most unusual bird of the day had to be a single female Rusty BB visiting the seed on the Quaker Ridge Hawkwatch lawn. If you feed them, they will come! She stayed around for the remainder of the day once she put down. Also, all birds except for the Fox Sparrow were observed from the Hawkwatch lawn! Not too shabby for sitting comfortably in an Adirondack chair counting migrating hawks.
I imagine tomorrow could be a good day as well.
All the best,
