Birded with Mark Thomas (finally another birder in Spruce Pine!) at the Orchard this morning and saw only one small to medium size flock between appro. 8:15 and 8:45 am. However, the flock had great diversity with Worm-eating, Chestnut-sided, Black-throated Green, Hooded, Am. Redstart, Parula and the Blue-winged. The latter was a life bird for Mark. I had told him that I only saw a very few during the Fall migration and the lower Orchard Road was the best place for them! I also saw a probable Blackburnian at the Orchard. Late yesterday I saw a Blackburnian and a Black-throated Blue Warbler at the cabin to make nine Warbler species in the space of a day. Fall migration is on!
