Subject: Fall Migration Recap, 9/24-9/29
Hey everyone,
This past week has been an incredible week of Fall migration in my 'home turf' near my house here in Wake county, close to Falls Lake. Starting last Sunday, I have covered this territory hard every morning and on a couple afternoons, and have therefore amassed quite the list of birds. For me, I think this is the greatest week of Fall migration I have ever had; 17 warbler species and so many more great birds, the birding has been terrific each morning. I have had species that I have never recorded here before, some really great finds, and in at least one case I have had the highest number of a single species I've had at a single spot (see Rose-breasted Grosbeak). I have been keeping a list of notable birds (mostly migrants) in the area to show diversity and how numbers changed from one day to the next, starting with Sunday through today, and thought I would share it with you all; please see the list below. 
Hope everyone else has been enjoying Fall migration! Perhaps I will see some of you at the Carolina Beach State Park Bio-blitz tomorrow...
Cheers and happy birding,
Kyle KittelbergerRaleigh, NC
