Today I had a commitment that ran form 830AM to 2PM. This was bad timing. It is a Saturday during fall migration. Lots of talented and experienced birders are combing the local hotspots for unusual migrants. They found some.
It was quite agonizing to watch the email reports come in. Blackpoll Warbler. Tennessee Warbler. Chestnut-sided Warbler. Prothonatory Warbler (awe-inspiring looks). Ouch.
By the time I arrived home it was mid afternoon and 90 degrees. And I had to change out a tire. I was going nowhere.
Hopefully I can catch up with some of these migrants tomorrow. I'll be at it bright and early!
