Migration Monitoring – September 8th, 2007

The early morning calm was shattered by a fusillade of gunfire. Its either the start of hunting season or the Cayuga Philharmonic is practicing the 1812 Overture with buckshot accompaniment. All in all a bad day for the American Green-Winged Teal and Northern Pintail that made an appearance along the river in front of the mansion during census.

A few south-bound migrants around, but generally a fairly slow day.
