Higbee Beach

Sorry, I don't have much time to expound on today's birding. Much of the flight continued high over head. I heard that the Morning Flight was quite good. As has been typical in the last little while, the land birding was difficult. There were birds around but deep in the woods or zipping past. Highlights were loads of Red-breasted nuthatches, lots of Sharp-shinned hawks and a Philadelphia vireo. The list of species seen is below.
