A morning survey and occasional checks on the birds at Stratford Point 
today yielded mostly expected migrants, highlights including: 6 
Forster's Tern, 2 late Barn Swallow, various raptor sightings of 
Cooper's, Sharp-shinned, and Red-tailed Hawks, Merlin, several Northern 
Harrier, several hundred Brant, building Sanderling and Dunlin, several 
remaining Black-bellied Plover, Blue-headed Vireo, several 
Golden-crowned Kinglet, Gray Catbird, Hermit Thrush, Winter Wren, 
several each of American Pipit and Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Sparrows included Field, Swamp, Eastern Towhee, Dark-eyed Junco, and 
dozens of Savannah, Song, and White-throat. Hopefully we'll get our FOS 
Vesper sometime this week. More birds like the Black-capped Chickadee, 
White-breasted Nuthatch, and Blue Jay continue to irrupt. There is a lot 
of natural food still left! Plus we continue to supplement with seed. I 
feel good about our chances scoring some more uncommon, rare or big hits 
in the next month or two...
