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.
