Had a few new arrivals for the fall today; Eastern Kingbird, Swainson's Thrush, and Linclon's Sparrow. There was a rather large roaming flock of chickadees, nuthatches and warblers today. I hate to admit the extent to which this quick moving flock worked me over, but I was able to pull out Nashville, Blackpoll, Magnolia and a fair number of Palm's. Nova and I were able to photograph a Dainty Sulphur butterfly today just south of the Point. I believe this is the only record for this species on the U.P. outside of Gogebic County, which is in the extreme western U.P.
FEEDERS: The feeders are attracting White-throated and White-crowned Sparrows, Pine Siskin, Purple Finch, and Am. Goldfinch.
