Cameron was windy today with a strong easterly wind. Bugs were kept down except in windbreaks. Otherwise, a lot of this sounds like a rerun of the past few weeks. About 10 warbler species, most as singles, and very little otherwise. There were 2 Bell's Vireos by in the ragweed field W of the porta-potty.
Tides were very high and wind-blown, to the extent that water was onto the main street of Cameron, so I birded the woods. Willow Island was slow, or at least, so windy that birding was slow.
Inland, winds were lower and birds were a little easier to find. Lots of Cave Swallows around, still good numbers of Eastern Kingbirds, and more red-tails and accipiters are showing up.
