For a few warblers more
It's been a little slow birding-wise this month, but I did come across a nice bunch of neotropical migrants at Spruce Creek Park near the Rockfish Valley trail last week. Unfortunately, the Chestnut-sided Warblers were too far away for a good photograph. On Monday, I saw a Black-throated Blue Warbler at Montgomery Hall Park in Staunton, and I saw that same species the very next day on the Blackwater Creek Trail in Lynchburg, managing to get a decent photo. (Stay tuned.) I also saw a Cape May Warbler there, as well as in our back yard earlier on Monday.
Cape May Warbler (probably female or juvenile), in Staunton, September 22.
Clockwise from top left: Cape May Warbler, Magnolia Warbler, Chestnut-sided Warbler, and Black-throated Green Warbler, on the Blue Ridge Parkway, September 10. All are females or juvenile males.
I have also spent some time up at the Rockfish Gap Hawk Watch this month, and have seen a number of Broad-winged Hawks, Bald Eagles, Ospreys, and other raptors.

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.
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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:
- Wild birds (LAST)
- Science & Technology
- Latin America
- Culture & Travel
- Canaries ("Home birds")
- Baseball (FIRST)
