Ewing/Backyard 9/24

Northern Parula (2+)
Magnolia Warbler (2)
American Redstart
Chipping Sparrow (multiple)

and the local boys:
Carolina Wren
Carolina Chickadee
Tufted Titmouse
Downy Woodpecker

Considering that I hardly ever see Blackburnian in fall, this was a good find and a new yard bird.
Once again the mixed species flock is a reliable locator of migrants. This is also an early date for fall migrant Chipping Sparrows, although none of them stayed in my yard.
