We're moving into the end of the big migration of songbirds going south. This time of the year we see the late warblers like Yellow-rumped Warbler, Orange-crowned Warbler and Palm Warbler. As warbler numbers continue to decline the sparrows are moving into the region.
I spent a cold morning hoping to catch all the birds I was seeing in the goldenrod fields. The banding wasn't hectic but I had plenty of time to enjoy the scenery.
All fall days should be as nice as today!
