Spent the day at Sequoyah NWR. I had 82 species. It was a great day to out.
On one of my last stops I saw a Sora on one side of the road, then turned and saw a Blackpoll Warbler on the other side. That only happens in migration. Had a total of 9 male Blackpolls and 3 Northern Waterthrushes mixed in a huge flock of Yellow-rumped Warblers. It was a fallout of sorts. They were all in the trees just north of the river.
Shorebird and marshy waterbird habitat is limited. But I had ten White-faced Ibis, 3 Wilson's Phalarope, Least S, both Yellowlegs, and Pects.
