Thursday, August 28:  33 birds of 16 species, 9 recaps.  New species:  Philadelphia Vireo. Birds of the day were Magnolia Warbler with 7 new bands followed by Wilson’s Warbler with 3 new bands.

The weather was perfect and the winds overnight were favorable for fall migrants but we fell far short of my expectations for the day. Highlights included a nice variety of species including 8 warblers, two vireos, and two flycatchers.
