  1. Well the heading may say slow, but in Kissimmee birding today was hot. In less than two hours i saw:

    4-5 Barn Swallow
    c.20 Chimney Swift
    1 White-eyed Vireo
    6 Red-eyed Vireo
    c. 30 Blue-grey Gnatcatcher
    2 Northern Parula
    1 Chestnut-sided Warbler (Juv. Female)
    2 Ovenbird
    1 Northern Waterthrush
    1 Waterthrush sp.
    4 Common Yellowthroat
    1 Tennessee/ Orange-crowned Warbler

    Btw is Orange-crowned even around this early in Florida?

    Hope everyones day was as good as mine,

  2. 12 warblers of 7 species is hardly what any experienced birder would consider “hot” in fall migration. Actually, your report shows just how slow things are for this fall. What’s worse, I doubt anyone did any better down here. The report that I got from Larry was of only a couple of warblers, and he birded several sites from Dade to Monroe. When we start getting 15+ species in a morning with 100’s of individuals, then you are getting close to “hot”.
