This morning, I walked my dog along the High Line Canal Trail at Blackmer Lake. I was surprised to find a Hermit Thrush and a Catbird (in separate locations, but within a third of a mile or so). Lots of Brown Creepers, still, and at least one Pygmy Nuthatch where the High Line and Quincy meet.
There seems to be a mini-invasion of Hermit Thrushes in westish Arapahoe this fall. After encountering only 1 during spring migration this year (and that one, at deKoevend, was likely the one that spent the winter at the park), I've had three, in different locations, in November / December: at deKoevend, Ketring, and now Blackmer. Weird.
