Not a whole lot but a puff of birds made it into Miami, with some late night storms around it looks as if some birds dropped down.

  1. I put more effort into birding Matheson Hammock this morning (8/27). Started at the hammock trail at the north end of the parking area on the west side of Old Cutler Rd, then did the service road, and ended up on the east side from the parking lot to the bathroom area. I tallied the following total:

    Black-and-white Warbler (2)
    Prairie Warbler
    Redstart (2)
    Ovenbird (4)
    Louisiana Waterthrush
    Northern Waterthrush
    Summer Tanager
    Red-eyed Vireo
    Blue-gray Gnatcatcher (3)

  2. Chas Buhrman and I spent some time on a trail in John Chesnut.
    It was quiet, then ran into a small mixed flock.

    Lots of Northern Parula
    1 Red-eyed Vireo
    1 Kentucky Warbler
    1 Worm-eating Warbler
    1 Prothonotary Warbler
    1 American Redstart
    1 Chestnut-sided Warbler

    Other birds:
    Carolina Wren
    2 Great Crested Flycatcher
    Tufted Titmouse
    Barred Owl
    Red-shouldered Hawk

  3. So after hearing about yesterday’s Canada Warbler, I went to East Beach again to try and relocate it. So far I have been unsuccessful, but did add 4 more Kentucky Warblers, 1 Prairie Warbler, and another Northern Waterthrush to the list. I also found an Eastern Wood-Pewee at the fountain by the ranger house.

    Should anyone relocate the Canada Warbler, please call or email me ASAP as this would be a lifer for me!

    1) Northern Parula
    1) Yellow Warbler
    1) Blackburnian Warbler ( 1st fall )

    1) Black-and-White Warbler

  5. Hi All.

    Tom Riggs and I birded Honeymoon Island and the Dunedin Hammock today with a good, but not spectacular showing of birds. Honeymoon is virtually flooded out, as the only way to get to the Osprey Trail is by walking from the end of parking lot north of the cafe, as the road is closed and under at least a foot of water. Much of the trail is also flooded. Considering how much standing water is out there, the mosquitos were tolerable, much to my surprise!!!

    Here are the highlights:


    Blue-winged Teal 79 (4 separate flocks flying south)
    Magnificent Frigatebird 112!!!! (Personal high count for park, as I watched the birds fly from one of the spoil
    islands north of the causeway were they roost)
    Whimbrel 3 (Behind nature Center on oyster bar)
    Solitary Sandpiper 1
    WHITE-WINGED DOVE 1 (Only the 4th Park record!!)
    Ruby-thr. Hummingbird 6
    Eastern Wood-Pewee 8
    Great Crested Flycatcher 6
    Eastern kingbird 2
    Gray Kingbird 20
    Yellow-throated Vireo 1
    Red-eyed Vireo 6
    No Rough-winged Swallow 1
    Purple Martin 4
    Barn Swallow 17
    Northern Waterthrush 2
    Kentucky Warbler 1
    BLUE GROSBEAK 1 (female/immature type, earliest fall record for park!!!)


    SHORT-TAILED HAWK 1 (dark-morph!!)
    Red-eyed Vireo 11
    Hooded Warbler 5

    Godd Birding!!!
