It was a windy but beautiful early and mid-morning along the Kaw. Especially around 7AM on the north side of the park and woods east of the bridge it was closest thing to a fallout of migrants that I can recall in these parts. I spent most of the morning on the north side of the park.

Ran into David Seibel & Galen Pittman when I finally got to the river trail after 9AM. They had counted 19 Palm Warblers in the grassy area along the river. I had never seen as many birds in the short grass and did not work it - I probably saw a 100 chipping sparrows. Peter Grund was in the part today and had an Ovenbird. I will be curious to see what he found - Galen and David will still out there working the river area deliberately when I departed late for work.
