Notes on Flight

I heard 144 flight notes in 10 minutes of listening around 6:00 a.m. this morning at Norbury's Landing, Veeries still predominant but a significant number of Swainson's Thrushes, a few Wood Thrushes, and some warblers.

There's a good, low hawk flight happening now with cloud cover and northeast winds, and many raptors are hunting in Cape May. Songbirding has been slow today.

I understand the first Snow Geese of fall were seen yesterday from Morning Flight and the Hawk Watch, and 6 Mark Garland picked a flock of 6 Black Scoters going south off Cape May around noon today.
