Re: yesterday's morning flight on West Cuesta Ridge

The warbler and vireo show continued this morning – a massive flight upslope was already underway when I got there just before 7:00. Continued at least until 9 am. Nine species of warblers; Hutton’s, Cassin’s and warbling vireos, tanagers, grosbeaks, lazuli buntings, ash-throated flycatchers, and a hermit thrush. Lots of Nashville warblers and one *maybe* Virginia’s warbler, seen too poorly to call it.

In re-reading my post from last night about yesterday’s morning flight of migrants on West Cuesta Ridge, I see that I managed to leave one of the most common species off the list entirely!

 

Bill and I tallied 60+ Orange-crowned Warblers yesterday morning between 0740–0915.
