The start of the fall season of the WGLBBO Waterbird Watch had an adult Parasitic Jaeger - the first one for this season, chasing Ring-bills on the first day of the count, at the Harrington Beach location. During the fall of 2015, a total of ten jaegers were tallied here through Sept and Oct. Just south of Harrington at Forest Beach Mig. Preserve, Calvin Brennan had good thrush numbers in the early morning today. He estimated 500+ Swainson's and approximately three dozen Gray-cheeked.
