We are out to band and don’t have time for a full interpretation this morning. Go Out and bird, by the looks of the radar migrants should be in your hood at migrant traps! Heavy Migration across the state last night 🙂

Let us know what you see.

  1. Sunday morning at Barnes produced 14 warbler species but not in good numbers. One each Summer and Scarlet Tanager, one Y-T Vireo. No thrushes, despite lots of calls last night flying overhead. Species of warblers:

    Northern Parula – 4-5
    Chestnut-sided Warbler – 1
    Black-throated Blue Warbler – 2, females
    Yellow-throated Warbler – 4-5
    Blackpoll – 1
    Blackburnian – 1
    Pine Warbler – 2
    Prairie Warbler – 6
    Black-and-white Warbler – 3
    American Redstart – 8-10
    Worm-eating Warbler – 3
    Ovenbird – 2
    Northern Waterthrush – 2
    Common Yellowthroat -1

    Maybe 40-45 individual warblers. Some R-E vireos around as well. Nothing even close to a mini fallout, despite plenty of raid in the area last night. I think Ihave a better chance of winning the lotto than seeing another fallout in my lifetime. Magee Marsh is looking very attractive next spring.
