Quality vs. Quantity

Today's conditions were excellent--but produced very low numbers of birds.  However, the birds that were produced were excellent; Prairie Warbler, Ovenbird, Bay-breasted Warbler, and a smattering of others.  Light winds and high overcast continue, as they have for over 90% of my stay--and tomorrow promises more of the same.

Note, dear readers, that my time on the island dwindles.  My boat for the mainland departs in a mere 7 days.  Let us hope for a final week that is filled with wonderful portrait subjects.

This Bay-breasted Warbler showed up at the lighthouse and spent most of its time hiding at the bottom of Owl Chute--here it is seen cooperating with the portraitist.

This Prairie Warbler was a tag team spot by Don and Rob.  Good work, guys.  Here it is, acting coy.  I hope that it's here tomorrow and allows for some better portraits.
And, finally, today's eBird checklist.
