Bill Haddad, Dan Garber (phtographer from SC) and I, along with 2 other local birders arrived at Hefner Gap early this morning. We saw 35 total species including 12 different species of warbler (Tennessee, Hooded, Magnolia, Bay-Breasted, Am. Redstart, Cape May, Chestnut-sided, Black Throated Green and Blue, Black and white, Pine and yellow-throated). We did see a good number of Scarlet Tanagers and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks. We saw both Blue-headed and Red-eyed Vireos, several Empids as well as Wood Pewees and common birds.
It was a very active day for birds and as is the case for fall migration hot spots, there were many birds we were not able to identify in the fleeting moments they appeared. Things slowed down about 9:30 am.
