Early bird gets the worm, the first good push

A preliminary report with pending reports forthcoming, today saw the first good "fall" day of birds, seen in quality with warblers and vireos, spurred on by the cool north wind.

Topping the 5- vireo day of PHILADEPHIA,YELLOW-THROATED, WARBLING,RED-EYED & WHITE-EYED, 13 species warblers ( so far reported) was celebrated by a HOODED female seen at the Boulder Bridge west woods by  Keir. High quality no doubt remains the PHILADELPHIA VIREO (PDorosh)  atop Lookout Hill by the north path from the Butterfly Meadow and OLIVE SIDED FLYCATCHER above Arleens Pines with Adam Welz and Jerry Layton looking on.

More later,as home beckons me with work ending now.
