Migration Monitoring: November 2 - 8

Winter Wren by volunteer Mark Field

The weather has been beautiful for the last few days, and if it weren’t for the almost leafless trees we might forget that winter is on its way. The flow of migrants is but a trickle now, and many of the birds we are catching are likely here for the winter. There is however the odd Myrtle Warbler and Hermit Thrush, as well as some lingering Golden-crowned Kinglets and Brown Creepers. We have continued to see Northern Saw-whet Owls, Long-eared Owls and Great Horned Owls this week. Some hawks are still moving through, including Northern Harriers and Coopers Hawks.
