Fall Birding at Magee - 09 Sep 2017

Robin and I drove down to Magee Marsh and walked the boardwalk. High winds were blowing out on the lake, but relatively calm on the boardwalk, itself. Birding was a bit quiet, but we did see a few fall warblers. Blackpoll Warblers were most abundant, along with Palm and Yellow-rumped. This Cape May Warbler was the only cooperative bird for me.

A Philadelphia Vireo was a nice find, as well. As was a Gray Catbird.

We then drove over to Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge and took the Wildlife Drive through the refuge. Water levels were a bit high, but we did see a nice flock of 55 Long-billed Dowitchers and a single Greater Yellowlegs.

Common Gallinules were abundant. Mostly juveniles.
