Yellow Warbler at Greenbury Point.

Things are starting to pick up. I’ve been hanging out at  Sandy Point and Greenbury Point waiting for more birds to show, and today might have been the breakthrough.

I started at Sandy point, where I found a couple of decent shore birds, then went on to Greenbury Point.

I found plenty of activity right off the bat, including some birds I hadn’t seen there in a while. I think migration is under way!
