8/27 migration

Blue-gray Gnatcatcher

The woods were quite active again, although things were more spread out. Warbler diversity remains good, with 10 species today. Swainson's Thrushes were present in high numbers with at least 13 at the point. Other thrushes were quite skittish and flew off before they could be identified.

Highlights: Northern Goshawk, Philadelphia Vireo, Brown Creeper, 5 Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Swainson's Thrush, and 5 Lincoln's Sparrows.

Warbler species(10): Nashville-3, Northern Parula-1, Cape May-1, Yellow-rumped-30, Black-throated Green-2, Palm-3, Blackpoll-2, Northern Waterthrush-1, Common Yellowthroat-3, and Wilson's-3
