Had a White-throated Sparrow this morning at Stratford Point...they've made it to the coast. Aside from that and the darn skittish Mourning Warbler it was mostly common stuff with a lot of Common Yellowthroats, Palm Warblers and Gray Catbirds, with a few Eastern Phoebes, House Wrens, Chipping Sparrows, American Redstarts and Eastern Wood-Pewees. Also an American Kestrel hunting the grounds. Someone opened the Savannah Sparrow flood gates the other day and there are a few Swamp Sparrows about as well. A Carolina Wren was my consolation prize for missing a shot of the Mourning Warbler. Surprisingly I hadn't had a photo of one from the Point yet, as we lost the local pair a few years ago (before my time) and they aren't particularly migratory.
