Area Birders,
I had 32 bird species in my yard this morning with the most notables being
an immature Rose-breasted Grosbeak, a Great-crested Flycatcher, 2
Black-and-White Warblers, 1 male Hooded Warbler, a Worm-eating Warbler, 2
Yellow Warblers, a Yellow-breasted Chat, 2 White-eyed Vireos, 10 Red-eyed
Vireos, 5 Cedar Waxwings, 2 Northern Flickers and 2 Blue-gray Gnatcatchers.

The Grosbeak was the first one of the fall migration. The Red-eyed Vireos
are increasing in numbers, but no Tennessee Warblers among them yet. I
usually have to look closely at the vireos to see if they have that larger
bill and longer body. When the two species are in the same flock, as they
usually are in September, a quick look can sometimes be deceiving.

For those interested the complete list follows
