a short prospect morning walk

My short morning Prospect walk had a few warblers and some other expected birds, from Lookout hill to the Peninsula.

First a Black & white warbler female made its appearance at the fringes of Butterfly  meadow. Some Cedar  waxwings popped in view at the mead edge with a single American Goldfinch.

However more action happened at the peninsula tip. There a  young male Yellow warbler spotted with an American Redstart juvenile  female type; tthen from my view at the shelter,i see across at Duck Island where more activity  was seen in a Box Elder. A few Yellow warblers mingled with as far as i saw Warbling Vireos,a known breeder here.

On my way out, a Spotted Sandpiper flew across the Lake to the peninsula shoreline,an adult happily teetering along.

Early fall action always excites.
