September wanes ...
I'll probably go birding at the creek corridor tomorrow morning, but the last couple of times I've been out I went to the prairie parcel of Pheasant Branch Conservancy. To my delight, sparrow migration is well underway. There are many Lincoln's Sparrows and White-throated Sparrows, but I was slightly surprised to find my first Dark-eyed Junco and White-crowned Sparrows of the fall season.
September sure went by quickly. Weather-wise, it's been very mild and still feels like late summer. October begins next week and that means the possibility for Harris's Sparrows, though I usually associate them with much cooler weather.
Beautiful place, isn't it? I'd write more, but I'm too tired and plan to hit the field early!
