Today (2 Sep) at Carver's Gap on Roan Mtn., in northeast Tenn., I observed a 
Yellow-rumped Warbler.  This is considerably earlier than their normal fall 
arrival date, which is usually late Sep.  Also present was a female / immature 
type Selasphorus hummer, most likely a Rufous.  This bird was unusual in that 
it was seen in an area devoid of feeders, but rich in flowers (jewelweed, 
etc.).  Congratulations to Rack Cross for, more or less, predicting this 
species appearance there.
