Gentle north winds overnight, the pre-dawn radar looked promising, the time of year was right for an August push of southbound migrants, but it depended on where you were.
It was a good morning at Chimney Rock. Jeff Ellerbusch tallied the following species:
Eastern Kingbird – 10, including a flyover group of 9.
Red-eyed Vireo – 5
Cedar Waxwing – 40
Black-and-white Warbler – 15
American Redstart – 40
Magnolia Warbler – 2
Yellow Warbler – 2
Chestnut-sided Warbler – 8
Black-throated Blue Warbler – 4
Black-throated Green Warbler
Canada Warbler – 2
Elsewhere, at Sasso Tract, nary a migrating warbler was found. It was generally inactive with all species. Nonetheless, the Olive-sided Flycatcher (OSFL) continued on the same snag as the previous day. This makes 8 days of this individual at Sasso assuming it is the same OSFL.
Alex Bernsweig managed a Least Flycatcher or two across Meriden Road along the Mining Road Trail AKA Righter Mining Trail (see the Sasso Tract map above).
Mike Hiotis found an Olive-sided Flycatcher at Glenhurst Meadows and put the Red-headed Woodpeckers in their proper geographical place in his JerseyBirds post which is here. The mocosocoBirds post Mike refers to is here.
