Morning Flight - Wednesday, September 26, 2018

It was a tranquil morning on the dike as a trickle of birds moved through on SSE winds and humid conditions, including a few Cape May and Blackpoll Warblers.

The highlight of the morning was an adult male Black-throated Blue Warbler that was foraging low for moths along the lip of the dike! If I were a warbler, I would have much rather fueled up on some delicious moths (Hawaiian Beet Webworm Moths, to be precise) than migrate today.
Once more into the breach! 
In non-warbler news, a handful of Blue Jays were a sign of what will hopefully prove to be a nice irruption of them. The Hawkwatch can also be a great place to see active migrating Blue Jays in good numbers, since they like the oaks around the State Park.

Lastly, a Yellow-billed Cuckoo was a welcome surprise, even if it was a brief look!

As always, you can find the link to the official count on Trektellen here and the complete eBird checklist here.

Bring on Day 57!
