Morning Flight, 18 September 2015

Friday brought a much more relaxed flight past the dike, with a lot of birds appearing to not really be in the mood to push back north with any urgency. The humidity was up a tad, accompanied by a light S/SW breeze and some low fog. It was a nice morning for appreciating the diversity of mid-September in Cape May, with fine looks at Blackburnian Warbler, Scarlet Tanager, and Rose-breasted Grosbeak, among others.

Some selected totals:

Tennessee Warbler – 3
American Redstart – 39
Cape May Warbler – 1
Magnolia Warbler – 1
Blackburnian Warbler – 1
Chestnut-sided Warbler – 1
Blackpoll Warbler – 6
Black-throated Blue Warbler – 1
Palm Warbler – 19
Black-throated Green Warbler – 1
Scarlet Tanager – 2
Rose-breasted Grosbeak – 1
Baltimore Oriole – 4
