Yesterday, the tenth, a female MacGillivray's Warbler made her way through the brush along my north fence line. That was the first one I'd ever seen in my yard, long overdue and species number 165 on the yard list. I would not have seen her if she had not alerted me with her call notes.
Today, in the early morning, two other migrants showed up. A juvenile Eastern Kingbird perched in the brush near my barn. Soon it started calling. This might have been one of the birds that fledged from a nest in Hamilton, about two miles east of my place.
A few minutes later, a Red-eyed Vireo flew into my birch tree, which is always the center of attention for insectivorous birds here in August and September.
Soon I expect this trickle of migrants to swell.
