America Redstart at Greenbury Point.

It was unusually busy at Greenbury /Possum Points this morning. More people than I’ve seen in 7-8 years.  A pandemic/holiday effect, I suppose. Not exactly a huge crowd, but it was noticeable.

I’ve been sticking with Possum and Greenbury Points for a while now. It’s really just like anywhere else-some days are better than others.  With migration really at a high point, I’ve got good chances for another few weeks.

Today’s Redstart was a treat (I confess to preferring the males) and there was enough activity to keep me interested for a while. That’s been the pattern several times. Yesterday a flock of migrants included Orchard Orioles and Red Eyed Vireos.

I did OK today. Other birders saw more species than I did, so it’s looking promising.
