Ross Harris lead a very successful walk on September 8th to kick off the fall season. After a brief stop at the pond, we headed north without ever visiting the lake. That turned out to be a great choice, because there were lots of migrating warblers, vireos, and flycatchers to be found. Fall birding can be a challenge, because the birds generally don’t sing, they are often moving quickly, and most are wearing cryptic fall plumage rather than their more familiar and distinctive breeding plumage. With so many birds, no one saw everything, but everyone saw something. By the end (plus some overtime) with the help of many keen eyes, we managed a total of 57 species, including 16 species of warblers.
