I started at Sandy Point, as I often do at this time of year, and got a few looks at a decent sunrise. I always want more color, but it was good enough.
I’ve been hearing that the migrants are on the move, and sure enough, they were. When I got to the big field near the parking lot, I could see dozens of small birds dripping from the leaves and branches. This only happens a few times a year, and it’s a real treat.
I was pleased to see it was a mixed flock of Sparrows and Kinglets. There were at least two cool Sparrows, and one of the Ruby Kinglets was kind enough to show me his ruby stripe, which doesn’t always happen.
A Hawk and a Warbler were just icing on the cake.
