Prospect August 31st

August's last day revealed  Prospect's best bird being MOURNING WARBLER in the Butterfly Meadow. This afternoon just after 5:45, at the north side corner Butterfly Meadow, I followed a 1st year non-breeding male with-- its bright yellow front and grayish head-- that eventually disappeared into the fallen ash tree . Phil Pane reported a Mourning Warbler this morning, perhaps this being the same bird in this location.

Other birds so far I heard was WORM-EATING WARBLER ( M.Eyster)  on Lookout among the various damaged habitats..more later from other birders....
