It was indeed super birdy early this AM at Stratford Point, and it was a 
seasonal shift similar to Glenn's. So far today I've had near 60 species 
including that Lincoln's Sparrow, the rare for us Ovenbird, and a quick 
look at what was likely the continuing Clay-colored Sparrow where it was 
previous days. More migrants included 2 Ruby-throated Hummingbird, 2 
Eastern Wood-Pewee, 26+ Eastern Phoebe, 1 Red-eyed Vireo, a small group 
of Tree Swallow, 4 House Wren, 16 Golden-crowned Kinglet, 7 Ruby-crowned 
Kinglet, 5 Gray Catbird, 1 American Pipit, 1 Black-and-white Warbler, 
29+ Common Yellowthroat, 1 Magnolia Warbler, 1 Yellow Warbler, 2 
Blackpoll Warbler, 13+ Palm Warbler, 4 Yellow-rumped Warbler (my FOS), 2 
White-throated Sparrow (my FOS), 1 Swamp Sparrow, 1 Eastern Towhee, 2 

Also several Northern Harrier, a couple American Kestrel, Cooper's Hawk, 
Red-tailed Hawk. I noted some of our common residents (uncommon or 
absent here) moving through as well including Black-capped Chickadee, 
Blue Jay, Northern Flicker, and White-breasted Nuthatch. Though I did 
not see any Red today I am glad to hear they're still moving elsewhere. 
Redstarts apparently kept to McKinney today. I'll keep looking with all 
the places we have for birds to hide...and things change rapidly here, 
so you never know. Stop by.
