Hi all,

Back from Maine and thus, back at WRP. A sunny cool morning, but quieter than expected. Not helped at all by loud mowers and blowers at Pine Lake (oblivious to the birders and walkers being disturbed, not to mention the birds - needless to say, no birds there!) Best birds for us were probably the Broad-wing and the Least Flycatcher, but other birders saw a Philadelphia Vireo we missed ☹️.

Still tons of warblers and vireos in Maine so hope they make their way here soon, it has been a bit of a slow autumn so far!
