I spent a little over an hour at LaFitte's this evening and it was the quietest yet this migration season.
There were only 7 birders! And not many more birds.
4 warbler species found - Blackpoll, Tennessee, Common Yellowthroat, N. Parula.
Other migrants were 1 Painted Bunting, half-dozen each of Indigos and Orchard Orioles, 2 Easten Kingbirds.
1 each Catbird, Summer Tanager, Eastern Wood-Pewee
The most unusual sighting was the Brown Thrasher walking along the sidewalk as there were no people there! Photo1 Photo2
As I was leaving someone pointed out this FOS Common Nighthawk on a branch of the large dead oak in the center of the woods.
Hopefully better birding on the weekend.
