A cloudy, cool morning with rain on the way and the garden gets busy. We have all been waiting for migration – although it is late the signs in the past two or three days are that birds are slowly beginning to arrive. In the garden this morning, first a Rose-breasted Grosbeak (#63) followed half an hour later by four White-crowned Sparrows (#64) and five minutes after that a Black-throated Green Warbler was working through one of the maple trees. This latter was not a new tick as we had heard one a couple of days ago but he was certainly the first seen. A couple of White-throated Sparrows are still here but the bigger flocks we have been having look like they have moved on. Naturally, the Song Sparrow and his friends are still with us, making a noise and attacking their window reflections.
Keep them coming.
