Hi all,

Much less activity than anticipated after a night with NW breeze, although a good number of Jays, Flickers, and Robins were on the move. We only saw 5 species of warbler, but enjoyed first of season Blue-headed Vireo and Gray-cheeked Thrush. Other migrant like Tanagers have been very thin on the ground so far, in fact it has been a rather slow autumn, something other birders have also reported from other sites. Hope it picks up!
