I went out on the Museum Campus at lunchtime. The number of migrants was
not very impressive. But I managed 3 species of thrushes (18 Hermit, 7
Swainson's and 1 Gray-cheeked) and 6 warblers. Yellow-rumped dominated, but
also Palm, Nashville, Tennessee, American Redstart, and best of all a
female Black-throated Blue. Among sparrows, just White-throated and
juncos. The other two birds of interest were both in the trees along the
north edge of Burnham Harbor, a singing Purple Finch, and an adult
Black-crowned Night-Heron.
