A few more fall warblers

Last night's rain brought markedly cooler temperatures, creating ideal conditions for spotting migratory songbirds. Indeed, I saw two kinds of warblers before I even reached the trail behind the Staunton-Augusta Rescue Squad. I was surprised not to see any hummingbirds, which have not shown up at our feeder for the past few days. I did come across several interesting birds, nevertheless, and it was a great morning to get outside. It won't be long before the first winter birds arrive...

  • Blackpoll warbler (F/J)
  • Redstarts
  • Red-bellied woodpeckers
  • Downy woodpeckers
  • White-breasted nuthatch
  • Flickers (M, F)
  • Magnolia warblers (F/J)
  • Black-throated green warblers (M, F/J)
  • Blue-headed vireo
  • Rose-breasted grosbeak (F)
  • "Empid" flycatcher
Redstart eating

This female Redstart had to pause while feasting on a tasty insect, giving me time to snap a photo. It was right in our back yard!

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


Explanation

The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
