September brought a modest wave of migrants into Morris Township today. At the Patriot’s Path area of Washington Valley Road, a juvenile Yellow-bellied Flycatcher appeared in the southwest corner of the field before moving on. Also present were Black-and-white Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, American Redstart, Northern Parula, Magnolia, Chestnut-sided and Black-throated Green Warblers and a Baltimore Oriole.
At Sayre’s Farm, Jamie Glydon and I had great looks at a Tennessee Warbler. Later, a probable second individual was located in a different section of the property. Also at the farm were 6 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, Chimney Swifts, 3 E. Wood-Pewees, 2 Alder-Willow (Traill’s) Flycatchers, Red-eyed Vireos, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Common Yellowthroats and a Rose-breasted Grosbeak.
