Wind is back

No respite from wind these days. Even so, every day of migration is exciting. Here's a Gray Flycatcher I identified with a little help from Kelly Bryan.

And a male Western Tanager that I couldn't get an unobstructed shot at.

Townsend's Warblers may be masked but they're not bandits.

A Catharus species showed up on the 24th, but I was unable to get a positive ID on it. With much going back and forth by experts, it is now officially an "Olive-backed" Swainson's Thrush. Whew! Sometimes it takes a village. CMO is either thrush heaven or thrush hell, not sure which. Kidding!
