Influx of Yellow-rumped Warblers and Brown Creepers with the cold front today. As has been reported earlier, a lot of the birds in elms appear to be pursuing, rather frantically, yellowjackets. Barn Swallows still appear to have young under Taft at Laporte Ave. Turkey Vultures still roosting in spruce a couple blocks east of the cemetery on Mountain Avenue. One pewee still present today.
