Six SIB members gathered on each of the mornings of Thursday September 29th and Friday September 30th for three-hour birding sessions with David Gardner at St. Christopher. Although we were hoping for a few more migrating warblers each day, we were pleased to have seen (or heard) 34 species of birds on Thursday and 38 on Friday (see complete list below.)
Of most interest on the first day were the great views we got of the many American Redstart, Red-eyed Vireo’s and White-eyed Vireo’s. On the second day we enjoyed seeing two migrating birds of prey, the Merlin and a Peregrine Falcon. We even caught a glimpse as we heard a Bobolink pass overhead as it was heading south for winter.
