Today we began walking for migrants in our Woods.  We generally saw the same short cast of characters, but did see 2 Swainson's Thrushes and one Flycatcher we weren't willing to make a final call on.  We did NOT hear Blue-gray gnatcatchers or common yellowthroats today, which have been regulars throughout the summer.
