[wisb] Migrant fallout in Onalaska on Thurs.

I was elated yesterday, after lamenting the lack of warblers and other migrants 
around my home this month, to have an actual fallout event in my own yard.  
Starting at about 9:00 AM there was much activity in my trees, my mini-prairie, 
and around my small garden pool with a waterfall.  
 
Seen on Thursday morning and again in early afternoon in my Onalaska yard:
 
-3 black and white warblers working trees next to my windows
-3+ Nashville warblers drinking and bathing in my little waterfall and foraging 
among goldenrod stalks
-Tennessee warblers among goldenrods and visiting my water features
-An adult male redstart flitting around trees
-A Swainson's thrush in thicket by my windows
-A blue-headed vireo in my dogwoods and visiting my waterfall feature
-An adult male scarlet tanager bathing in my shallow rock-lined garden pool 
-An adult female hummingbird and a male immature visiting my two feeders
 
Also seen on Thurs.:  Green darner dragonfly and a red admiral butterfly on my 
driveway
 
Unfortunately, today is pretty quiet around here.  I'm glad I was home 
yesterday to see the brief flurry of activity.
