Sept 11th, Prospect ; Quiet day

This morning's birding slackened off much considerably from yesterday's, a result of unfavorable east-southeast winds. A report of Lookout Hill's active spot was most welcomed to hear but contained a usual influx of more common warbler species I think some CANADAS. A few dispersed reports, one WILSON'S WARBLER mingling among needle leaves branches with some Redstarts on a down Dawn Redwood tree blocking the Peninsula Thumb.The Peninsula offered a few birds besides Wilson's, one very small active pocket at the tip. Generally , all quiet is the word....

A late afternoon report though salvaged the day with YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER at Butterfly Meadow's southwest corner above budleia bush ( J.Ascher).
