Hello Bird People,

Seems like every day I list the birds that were present but not seen
by me. Today is no exception with Black Throated Blue, Golden Winged,
Orange Crowned & Connecticut Warblers all being seen but missed by me.
If it was a rare Warbler I failed to see it! I hope this stops!

Dunes & Beach (6:45-7:45 a.m.)

Canada Goose (2) & Mallard (17)
BLACK BELLIED PLOVER (1, still here)
Killdeer (3) & Semipalmated Sandpiper (1, did not arrive until 10 a.m.)
Ring Billed (~50) & Herring (4) Gulls
Starling (2) & Palm Warbler (2)

Hedge Area (7:45-10:45 a.m.)

Canada Goose (6) & Ring Billed Gull (4)
Cooper's Hawk (1)
Pigeon (6) & Mourning Dove (4)
YELLOW BELLIED SAPSUCKER (1, 1st of Fall)
Downy Woodpecker (1)
Least Flycatcher (1)
Eastern Phoebe (1)
Blue Jay (2)
Chickadee (4)
R.B. Nuthatch (2)
House Wren (1)
R.C. Kinglet (4)
GOLDEN CROWNED KINGLET (2, 1st of Fall)

Song Sparrow (2)
Lincoln's Sparrow (2)
White Crowned Sparrow (4, all young ones)
White Throated Sparrow (8)
House Finch (6)
Goldfinch (4)
House Sparrow (10)

Ebird says I had 40 species for the day.
Bird-Of-The-Day will be the continuing Black Bellied Plover &
Runner-Up to the Ovenbird
which was not acting like an Ovenbird but was walking around on a
gravel path with 4 species
of Sparrows. Very interesting!

License Plate Of The Day to one from Utah parked at Montrose.
