A few of us spent time at BG this morning, hoping that the best easterlies
in a long time might bring some unusual species.

While variety and numbers were both lower than expected, highlights
included:

24 N Shovelers
a heard Baird's Sandpiper
Pomerine and Parasitic Jaegers
several groups of Vaux's Swifts
2-3 Blue-gray Gnatcatchers
5 species of common western warblers
Hooded and Bullock's Orioles
local and non-local Red Crossbills
a single female type Purple Martin

I didn't see a single raptor cross the Gate while I was out between 6:45
and 11:15.
