It was a great frosty fall morning in the University of Idaho Arboretum and Botanical Gardens in Moscow. The highlight was my latest-for-Idaho TOWNSEND'S WARBLER. I've repeatedly broken that personal record in the last couple of weeks, but this one will become the latest eBird record for all of North Idaho (pending acceptance). Other nice birds included a minimum of 2 MYRTLE YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS, 3 late CHIPPING SPARROWS, a small flock of Western Bluebirds, an intergrade Northern Flicker, a Slate-colored/Cassiar-type junco, and the first Pine Siskin I've around Moscow this fall. Still decent numbers of Audubon's Warblers and both Kinglets, but many of these flew over to forage in ash trees in the SE corner of the golf course after sunrise.
