Subject: [CT Birds] Bluff Point Highlights 9/22
Went to Bluff Point this morning and hiked from the hot corner nearly to Bluff Point and back. There were many flocks of warblers about, and for once, American Redstarts weren't the most common. Black-and-white Warblers took the lead, being the predominant species in almost every flock. Many of the passerines were hunkered low, trying to stay out of the strong winds, although there were a dozen or so brave ones (likely Blackpoll Warblers by flight call and timing) that were flying north into the headwind. There was also a strong raptor showing throughout the area, with Cooper's Hawks the most prevalent. See eBird checklist below:

Good birding,
