My New 'Bird Watcher' Column: Nickerson Beach!
'Batstock' Is Coming

The Rob Fanning Report: 081712

Rob sez:

"The first migrant warblers have started to appear at the CF--today featured a a female-type AMERICAN REDSTART and a "limey," aka a young CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER.

"Hummingbirds have been around daily--the peak of their migration thru the CF is now thru early Sept. Several BOBOLINKS were heard "pinking" there way to Argentina."

The full list follows. (Thanks, Rob!)
