Hi all,

A late start today day but still some nice birds, including FOS Blue-headed Vireo. Hopefully the predicted clear night with favorable wind will encourage more nocturnal migrants to visit, though.

Comments: Clearing morning after heavy rain during the night with fairly steady NW breeze, broken clouds. Fair diurnal migration but few nocturnal migrants. Did WRP down to Pine Lake and at Brookside, only native plant area and walled gardens.
