Fall migrants- Sat., Sept.12th

Cloudy and cool, upper 60s. Ran into three foraging mixed flocks during the day; chickadees were the main component, but you could hear other 'chip' sounds mixed in. We just stood still and tried to focus on one bird at a time. At the height of the passage, it was difficult to know which bird to go to next, they move so quickly in random directions. All the warblers, the kinglet, and the vireo were in these mixed groups. Best birds were seen on the service road behind the research ponds, and on the boardwalk next to the Beaver Pond. Adult Bald Eagle, circling at medium height, seen from the Heron Pond.
