Migration Morning Walk, Sept. 15th

Yet another blue sky morning in central PA — seems to make it a little easier to get out of bed and to the local bird spots.  Our group of 18 managed to intercept one small flock of migrants to enjoy and practice our id skills.  Hummingbirds still abound and as expected, they are concentrated around patches of jewelweed and other late summer blooms.
