Well boyz, we've now had 3 nights of DEAD radar in Grand Rapids, and until this morning no new birds. This morning was strange- I ended up having lots of warblers doing the morning reorientation flight thing, several of which eventually settled near the bath alongside other new Neotrop migrants:
Then around 3:30PM, this cold front which has been slowly working our way from the plains finally reach me:
So I went outside to see if anything was getting knocked down, and was surprised to have 2 BWHAs
and then, by far most surprisingly, a Common Nighthawk (it's been weeks since the last, and it's starting to get late):
Passerines of all stripes were also shuffling around up there in response to the hit of northern air, including this warbler sp. which Sam Galick is going to ID for me (if it's Blackburnian, I will be THRILLED since I am about to miss it for the year)
So, get up on those roofs beeches!
