Hi Tweets,

it was nice to have the cooler temperatures this past Wednesday. The smoke
from regional fires cleared out, making for a pleasant day. We had a
Solitary Sandpiper greet us at the Visitor Center Pond Overlook first thing
in the morning and nice numbers of migrating warblers and vireos. Here is
my eBird report, photo of Solitary Sandpiper are embedded if you click to
see the list on eBird.

70 plus species for the day, with a 152 species for the year, SOSA new for
the year.

Until next week when we meet again at 8am, good birding!
