Not to mention this where the Kirtland's Warblers head to.... and were probably there already. May be quiet next year up here.

News from the Birding Community E-Bulletin: CARIBBEAN BIRDS SERIOUSLY IMPACTED BY *DORIAN*
According to a report from BirdsCaribbean, *Hurricane Dorian* seriously impacted and devastated the northern Bahama Islands. The category 5 storm battered the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama Island for more than two days with 185 to 220 mph winds, and included a storm surge in excess of 23 feet. The damage to communities, lives, and habitats is unprecedented and heartbreaking. Also, among the endemic species particularly impacted were Bahama Parrot, Bahama Swallow, Bahama Warbler, and Bahama Nuthatch.
