The last couple mornings have been quite good for migrants near my house. Yesterday, I saw a yellow-belllied sapsucker, a new lifer, plus a yellow-rumped warbler, a couple mystery warblers, a ruby-crowned kinglet, a northern flicker, several blue jays, and a few juncos. This morning, I walked down to the open field and creek next to my house. I saw several swamp sparrows in the weeds along the creek, another new lifer, a couple more sapsuckers, several chipping sparrows, a song sparrow, several eastern phoebes, more juncos, and a group of 10+ eastern bluebirds. Before today, I had only seen three bluebirds, ever. The last two days have been my second-best migration experience ever, behind only one September morning a couple years ago when a mixed flock of warblers stopped in the trees next to my house.
