LaFitte's Cove Bird Report 9-17-11

I spent 3.5 hours at LaFitte's Cove this morning. The weather was overcast with a slight breeze, but still hot. There are now quite a few mosquitos.

I saw 5 species of warblers including 2 new ones for the fall migration (B&W, Yellow, Ovenbird, Nashville and Wilson's). The latter 2 were FOS for me.

There was only 1 species of vireo seen today - a Red-eyed.

The most common birds were Great Crested Flycatchers with perhaps 5-6 seen. Other flycatchers were Olive-sided, Least and Yellow-bellied.
