Hi all,

Not too much evidence of migration today - at least as regards new arrivals. Most of the Flickers, Gnatcatchers and Robins seemed to have left, however. We and other birders had our FOS Red-breasted Nuthatch near Pine Lake. Nice to have them back. Otherwise we only managed 4 species of warbler. Next few days don’t look great for bird movements, either.
