Migration Monitoring: September 25 - October 2

Northern Parula by Volunteer Ian Sturdee

It has been a cold and windy week at TTP, but luckily those north-westerly winds have brought lots of migrants our way. The Golden-crowned Kinglets have taken over the place, with the odd Ruby-crowned thrown into the mix. There have been hundreds of White-throated Sparrows, and it is a wonder we haven’t caught more of them! There are still quite a few warblers around, with the beautiful Black-throated Blue Warblers in the lead. Bands of Blue Jays continue to move through in large numbers, and we have seen migrating Sharp-shinned Hawks, Coopers Hawks, Osprey, Merlin and Peregrine Falcons.
