Could certainly tell we have gone from late Summer to early Fall with a walk along the Butterfly Trail at High Cliff this morning. Huge numbers of swallows were flocking above open spaces, particularly the adjacent golf course fairways. They seemed to be about half Barn Swallows, half Tree Swallows. Did manage to pick up one Cliff Swallow kind of by itself toward the marina, but wasn't able to find any other species. Had several dozen lined up on telephone wires at one point and everything was one of the two more common species. Picked up several warblers nearly all of which were near the cemetery or at the far north end of the trail. The marina held a couple Spotted Sandpipers while a cloud of gulls swarmed about ten feet above the water of Lake Winnebago to the northeast. Complete list below. Canada Goose X Wood Duck 4 Mallard 12 Great Blue Heron 1 Spotted Sandpiper 2 Ring-billed Gull 200 Mourning Dove X Downy Woodpecker 2 Hairy Woodpecker 1 Northern Flicker X Eastern Phoebe 1 Red-eyed Vireo 1 Tree Swallow 100 Barn Swallow 100 Cliff Swallow 1 Black-capped Chickadee 4 Blue-gray Gnatcatcher 3 American Robin 12 Gray Catbird 3 Cedar Waxwing 6 Tennessee Warbler 2 Nashville Warbler 1 Magnolia Warbler 1 Cape May Warbler 4 Palm Warbler 3 American Redstart 2 Song Sparrow 6 Northern Cardinal X House Finch 2 American Goldfinch X Thanks!
