The Mystery Revealed -- Almost

The Rob Fanning Report: 083109

  The cold-front brought in some migrants today. I saw 6 warblers, incl. nice looks at an Ovenbird. Fred saw Blue-winged and BT Green to make 8 total.

  I also saw a probable Parula but looks were too brief.

  Fred also saw an very early RC Kinglet--the first August record for the CF!
