Migrant Bonanza at Greenbury Point.

I had a couple of decent hours in when I ran into Dan Haas, premiere birder, and we hooked up for a further tour of the area.  He was successful in attracting many additional birds, and we were both got lucky in that so many birds were in the area.

I started with a very early Cape May Warbler. This is a bird I only see during migration, and it’s very attractive. Other warblers  were in abundance, and we found a Yellow Throated Vireo, a bird I’ve seen only once before. A Least Flycatcher was a lifer for me.

I ended up with about 40 species on this very rewarding day.
