To add to Frank's report. I had a Red-breasted Nuthatch this morning at the Point, a hen Northern Pintail mixed in with the Brant flock off the north shore of Stratford Point and a Prairie Warbler mixed in with some Palm Warblers. Also, a big push of Black-capped Chickadees and Tufted Titmice. Perhaps another indication of an irruption year coming up. I'm also pretty sure I heard a Dickcissel over by the garage, but never got a look. Also a gorgeous "gray ghost" Northern Harrier.
