Subject: [MDBirding] Eclectic Mix of Migrants
While documenting the late butterfly activity in our gardens and meadow
yesterday (29 September 2019), I had a couple of interesting birds. The
first was an Orange-crowned Warbler, which seemed a bit early in the
season (I had one in the yard a few years ago in November). I first
heard it singing softly from a tree in the backyard. It then flew down
to a shrub less than 10 feet from where I was standing. I got an out of
focus photo of it as it flew from the shrub back to the tree. A bit
later I was watching a Bald Eagle soaring overhead when I noticed a
Peregrine Falcon streaking south. I also observed a Magnolia Warbler fly
over the house. And there was still a lone immature Ruby-throated
Hummingbird nectaring on flowers and feeders in the yard. I just saw a
Ruby-throat visiting one of the feeders so we still have one on the last
day of September. That is late for us in SW Carroll County.
