September 3rd – Beginning To Feel Like Fall

We banded our first Magnolia Warbler of the season. -JET


Cool first thing this morning and, once the fog burned off, quite pleasant. It heated up a bit with the sun but not a lot and once the wind picked up it was very pleasant with just a hint of Fall in the air. This “fall atmosphere” was greatly enhanced to my way of thinking by the incessant calls of blue Jays throughout the morning – a call that always reminds me of cool, crisp days. Birding-wise it was fairly quiet although we did get the first Magnolia Warbler and Mourning Warbler of the season.
