Bluff Point Fallout

Northern ParulaMagnolia Warbler - first fallSeptember 16:  Bluff Point this morning had a spectacular “morning flight,” with perhaps as many as 5,000 wood warblers and other passerines passing overhead at the “hot corner,” with hundreds of them alighting to forage in the trees – the largest number of warblers I have ever seen in one place at one time, and that includes Magee Marsh in Ohio. Between 7:30 and 9 AM there were so many warblers flitting about in the branches that it was hard to know what to look at first. Including the overhead fly-bys, some 22 species of warblers were counted by the group, including two flying Connecticuts. There were also many vireos including two more Philadelphias, lots of Ruby-crowned Kinglets, and a smattering of other species.
