Highlights: Cape May and Magnolia Warbler
Well, anybody in the region knows we have been seeing some very unsettled weather. The last few days have been slow for songbirds, but it picked up a bit today. The Cape May and Magnolia Warblers seen today were both late dates for the Point. Horned Lark, American Pipit and Lapland Lonspur have been frequenting the grass around the parking lot and continue being seen out at the Point along with Snow Bunting. Common Redpoll continue daily and have begun visiting the feeders, as have Evening Grosbeaks. The hawks have been putting on some nice shows, over 40 Red-taileds today, Rough-leggeds have also been making appearances as have Northern Goshawks (photo above).
Feeders: Rusty Blackbird, Indigo Bunting, American Tree, Chipping, Savannah, Song, Lincoln's, White-throated, Harris's, and White-crowned Sparrows, White-winged Crossbill, Common Redpoll, Pine Siskin, Purple Finch, and Evening Grosbeak.
