Tennessee Warbler at Terrapin Nature Park.

It’s been a slow and wet September this year. I probably found fewer warblers than every other year.

I managed to get out most days when it wasn’t raining, which it did a lot. In most cases I found very few birds, and not as many migrants as in the usual September.

I made the trek to Bombay Hook this morning to change my luck, and did a great deal better. It still wasn’t as good as I’d like, but I’m sure it will get better soon.

  1. I love seeing what you see — and your photos! Finally made it to Terrapin Nature Park yesterday — wonderful!! Warblers — black-and-white, parula, common yellowthroat — 35 species. A very nice day! I appreciate your reports — gets me out of my usual spots!
