Recent migration

Things have really picked up in the woods this past week, including 21 species of warbler between the past 2 days and today. Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Swainson's Thrush, Philadelphia and Red-eyed Vireos, and Common Nighthawks are some of the more recent arrivals. There continues to be a decent variety of raptors around the point, including a Goshawk.

Warblers today include: Tennessee, Nashville, Chestnut-sided, Magnolia, Cape May, Yellow-rumped, Black-throated Green, Pine, Palm, Bay-breasted, Blackpoll, Black-and-white, A. Redstart, Common Yellowthroat, Wilson's, and Canada.
