Light migration, Sep. 4, 2013

Migrating birds lit up the radar overnight with movement visible across the entire east. It held the promise of a productive morning. Instead, something was altered during the early morning hours and the mocosocoBirds region only received a modest amount of activity.

Here are some highlights from the morning at Chimney Rock – 10 species of warblers (Jeff Ellerbusch, et al):
Swainson’s Thrush – 3
Cedar Waxwing – 120
Worm-eating Warbler
Black-and-white Warbler – 3
Nashville Warbler
American Redstart – 15
Northern Parula
Magnolia Warbler – 6
Blackburnian Warbler – 2
Yellow Warbler
Chestnut-sided Warbler – 5
Black-throated Green Warbler

From Leslie Webster:
Warbler news from Loantaka Brook Reservation: A Yellow-breasted Chat popped up on the west side of Kitchell Pond at 10 AM this morning. It was in the dense bushes between the willow trees and the bridge. In addition, 2 Black-throated Green Warblers were spotted in the woods, gleaning at eye-level.

    Negri-Nepote had lots and lots of field sparrows, and some families of common yellow-throats, but little else. I had expected more. Hannah Pond, though, is encircled by a wall of yellow tickseed flowers. I hope some of you with the right cameras will try to take one of those 360 degree panoramas. It’s really beautiful. (Not sure how you take a panorama from the middle of Hannah Pond, but your cameras look capable of miracles.)
