After laboring on Labor Day I stopped at the fill before going home and can one more species to the warbler fest, a Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubons, in faded breeding plumage. Refound the Townsends, plus Yellow, Orange-crowned, and Warbling Vireo. All near the little streamlet. All finding lots of bugs to eat.
Other birds of note were a beautiful juvenile Least Sandpiper at the eastish end of the main pond and a semi-lost American Bittern in the open on the other end of pond.
Ah, the joys of warbler neck (and thank god for Alleve). All in all a good word for this place right now is fillicious.
Great website about the fill:
