The morning flight this Tuesday (10/6) was similar to what Chris witnessed yesterday. Again there were very many YRWAs. Sprinkled sparsely among them were a prairie, palm, pine, and two black-throated blue warblers and some sparrows, juncos, blue-headed vireos, towhees, phoebes, and one brown creeper. The kinglets were numerous and displaying their colorful crests. Many birds flew by unidentifiable. The birds started to move with the sunrise (~6:50) and the pace fell off sharply by 8:00, the stragglers being yellow -rumps and sparrows.

About 160 warblers, at least half of which were myrtles.  The only other flyover warbler I got an ID on was a black-and-white, but I also had blackpoll, bt blue, and common yellowthroat in the woods.  Also small numbers of both kinglets, blue-headed vireos, a few flickers, 2 tanagers, a grosbeak, and 2 common loons.  Lots of towhees and several swamp sparrows and juncos.
