Fall Migrants at the Rea Farm – October 2, 2021

Leaders: Kathy Horn, Roger Horn, Bernie Hodgdon

Temp: 51° F

Winds:  WSW 5 mph

Weather Conditions: sunny

The arrival of Yellow-rumped warblers was very evident this morning at the Rea Farm as they flitted and chipped along the pond edges. The fall influx of sparrows has also begun; we had a White- throated Sparrow, plus Chipping, Swamp and Savanah Sparrows. A Northern Waterthrush fed quietly on the muddy ground of the wetwoods, spotted by one of our sharp-eyed participants.
