Highlights for the day include a Cedar Waxwing and several Mourning Warblers one of which was a male (no kidding! He is not in a hurry, apparently…).
Top 4 species:
Red-winged Blackbird – 9
Mourning Warbler – 3
Yellow Warbler – 3 (one of which had considerable amount of fat reserves)
Traill’s Flycatcher – 3
The numbers are telling that the season is coming to a close. It sure was a great one for all to experience. Here is a quiz bird for you:
Did you know you can tell male from female Cedar Waxwing by whether or not it has a black beard or not? This one is female with a brown throat. Cedar Waxwings are such sleek looking birds!
