Your checklist of the day!

Recommended Posts

An odd pattern of both early and late A.M. storms limited my options today.  I did all I could with the dry time at the same hotspot I went to yesterday.  A few fewer species and much fewer birds (I didn't see lots of Snowy Egret flocks like I did yesterday) than the previous day, but a good checklist, nonetheless.  I finally got some good photos of Brown-headed Cowbirds:

I'm usually going to get fewer species at this "backup" parking lot than at the usual place I frequent on weekdays, however, if the warblers keep coming back, this will turn into the main weekday place.  I'll investigate further, but I'm reasonably certain that the trees in the other lot aren't as conducive to Warblers as this one:

One tip: I don’t suggest uploading the original photos AND the edited photos. If you like the edited photos better, which I’m sure you would, only post them. No need for both IMO.

I went back here looking for Warblers and found a few.  I believe that as fall gets closer, more will show up.  I can get more species and birds at the other parking lot that I've been frequenting on weekdays, but I'll probably be going here more for the warblers.

Another tip I have is to check those random natural areas during fall migration for warblers and vireos. From my few weeks down there it seems like they are all underbirded and have lots of potential. Not that you’re doing anything wrong, just something that popped into my mind.

Fall warbler migration has truly begun by you?? It’s still incredibly slow here until mid September.

And you said the YEWA was kinda late, ours will be here until late September if not later! 

Different locations, different birds and late dates. That's how birding is.

I know, it’s still just so interesting how the YEWAs there leave even a month and a half earlier than the ones here…🫤

Yep! I would say it's at its peak here in the Upper Peninsula right now - back home in Detroit I'd give it a week or so before peak hits.
