Subject: [CT Birds] Bluff Point morning flight (8/25)
Nick Bonomo and I caught the Bluff Point State Park morning flight from 6am - 7:30am and walked around the paths in the vicinity of the "hot corner" for another 90 minutes after that. The morning flight was modest (~135 warblers of 6 species, plus other expected species). The walk in afterwards produced another 45 or so warblers but added 9 more species to the total for a nice tally of 15 warbler species for the day. 80% of the warblers were American Redstarts.


Highlights:
BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER
HOODED WARBLER
WORM-EATING WARBLER
NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH (2)
AMERICAN KESTREL (2)
BALD EAGLE
WARBLING VIREO (5)
PURPLE MARTINS
EMPIDONAX flycatchers (7), including a "Trail's" and 3 Leasts
