Birds continue to be on the move.
The first Swainson's Thrush of fall showed up on Sunday, 9-5-21. It was a day with six warbler species, too.
A Yellow-bellied Flycatcher was #85 for the year at the Bubbler on 9-8-21.
A Bay-breasted Warbler was a first of fall bird that Wednesday.
An Ovenbird walked in "the back door" to enjoy splashing about. Another FOS (first of season) bird was heard and seen, a Red-breasted Nuthatch. It was in too big of a hurry for a photo.
This Canada Warbler was seen several times throughout that day, bringing the warbler total to seven.
On Thursday, 9-9-21 a cool front had moved through making for a delightfully cool day with ten warbler species of 32 in total. This Northern Waterthrush was at the bubbler very early in the morning.
American Redstarts, Black-and-white and Bay-breasted Warblers were present.
Magnolia Warblers, the Ovenbird and a Blue-winged Warbler joined in the activity.
There was some discussion between the Bay-breasted and Blue-winged, but they worked it out and a Magnolia Warbler came to the party.
A Chestnut-sided was added to the warbler list.
The female Scarlet Tanager is the second we've seen this fall.
A young male Northern Cardinal explored the Bubbler area for the first time on its own. Golden-winged and Chestnut-sided Warblers decided the larger bird was no threat to them!
The Chestnut-sided Warbler returned later and had the "bubble" on the large rock all to itself.
