The first fall migrants of the year arrived near my home outside of Monteverde, 
Costa Rica today, Aug. 22:

Olive-sided Flycatcher
Black-and-white Warbler (2)

August 22 seems very early for North American migrants all the way down here, 
but these two species are very early migrants.  B&W Warbler is likely from 
populations breeding in East Texas or lower Mississippi Valley.  Olive-sided FC 
breeds in extreme SW USA, so maybe it is not such a long journey to Costa Rica.

Great to see migration getting started!
