August Wrap-up

Egrets at the Barnegat impoundment
The month began with our last day in Nevada & Utah and at the end of it we were in Delaware. In between, the big story was fall migration and grasspipers. All of my year birds this month were shorebirds. Of course, the excitement of the month took place at Whitesbog when two species of phalaropes showed up in the draining bogs, though that had its downside in attracting hordes of birders who don't normally go there. Whitesbog's roads are not designed for crowds.  

My last stop of the month today was Bunker Hill Bogs. I was thinking that perhaps there might be some evidence of fall migration for warblers and I was right. I found a Northern Waterthrush and a couple of American Redstarts along with my first Ruby-crowned Kinglet of the season. Those 3 species brought my month's total up to 165.
