Fall Migration is Here!

Migration is treating me somewhat better than in past years. I’m basically setting up my tripod in some likely spots (From experience) and most days I’m seeing some good birds. I usually stop at Woolchurch Pond around dawn to check on the Trumpeters and the other denizens of the pond, them head to Greenbury Point and Jonas Green Park to see what else I can find. Greenbury Pointy has been very productive. I’ve been to CBEC a couple of times, and once to Sandy Point, but neither was very productive.
Currently, the Trumpeters are in Woolchurch Cove, adjacent to Woolchurch Pond. I don’t know why. Maybe food related? It’s a smaller area, and there’s quite a few Herons and the occasional egret sharing it.
I’m posting my favorites from the past few weeks.

The male American Redstart has always been a favorite.

This is a Common Yellowthroat.

The Black Throated Blue Warbler is another favorite. I don’t see many.

I see Cape May Warblers regularly at Greenbury Point.

Blue Gray Gnatcatchers are are also regular visitors.

Red Eyed Vireos are prolific singers.

This juvenile Black Crowned Night Heron was at Woolchurch Pond.

I usually see several Magnolia Warblers each migration.

Eastern Wood Peewees are heading south for the winter.

I don’t see many Bay Breasted Warblers.

Greenbury Point is the only lace I’ve seen Yellow Bellied Flycatchers.

This is my second Wilson’s Warbler of the Fall.

Northern Parulas are passing through right now.
