Hi All. Looks like migration has finally arrived in downtown Raleigh. In an hours time looking from the roof of my porch deck (which is actually a deck itself) into a Hackberry tree with lots of fruit I saw: Red-eyed Vireo- 2 Cape May Warbler- 1 Blackburnian Warbler- 1 Chestnut-sided Warbler- 2 Scarlet Tanager- 2 Baltimore Oriole- 1 along with myriads of Robin, a few Thrashers and Mockingbird. I'm thinking the next couple of days should be hopping.
Looking up into the cloud cover I also noticed at least 7 Monarch butterflies drift by at about 50- 100 feet high.
