Another exceptionally quiet day. Overcast, breeze for the first hour or so. There weren’t even many dogs in the dog park, and people seemed to be walking around half-asleep. I think the entire park is waiting for a cleansing rain.

a.. CINNAMON TEAL - one flying with Mallards – first fall sighting ever
b.. GREEN-WINGED TEAL – one female flyby, 4th-earliest fall sighting ever
c.. Virginia Rail – one heard across slough from near start of boardwalk
d.. Spotted Sandpiper – two across from 3rd Dog Swim Beach
e.. Cooper’s Hawk – juvenile on soccer goals, fields 7-8-9
f.. Warbling Vireo – at least a couple
g.. Black-capped Chickadees – especially numerous
h.. Chestnut-backed Chickadee – especially numerous and widespread
i.. Swainson’s Thrush – heard about 5
j.. Black-throated Gray Warbler - 3+
k.. Brown-headed Cowbird – one juvenile
Misses today included Vaux’s Swift, Green Heron, Western Wood-Pewee, Willow Flycatcher, Marsh Wren, European Starling, Purple Finch, Savannah Sparrow, White-crowned Sparrow, Dark-eyed Junco, Black-headed Grosbeak, and Red-winged Blackbird.
