Prospect afternoon Sept 28th

In one of the better times I 've seen Breeze Hill come alive,despite no rarity,excellent warbler and bird activity abound.Prior to my arrival,Mary Eyster reported at least 11 species warblers on Breeze Hill.Accentuating the warblers, Chipping Sparrows,Indigo Buntings added variety.On the latter, 5 Indigo Buntings fed on grasses in the eastern most end of the dirt mounds.

Most of the activity I witnessed took place among the three Black Oaks inside the oval meadow, as warblers flew in and out to surrounding areas.

But the best sighting was BLUE GROSBEAK, a probable young male seen well in mug wort beneath a cherry tree on the slope edge below the Maryland Monument.Up higher,on the switchback trail,another kind of grosbeak,Rose- breasted types.

Blackpoll Warblers dominated the slopes.

Its a storm front passing thru , obviously trapping all these species today. The weekend should be good.. Get out and bird.

I will be away the weekend...
