Hello:  Thought it would be of interest that yesterday, September 12th, we had so many warblers in our backyard here in Austin, Mn, we couldn't begin to count them all.  There were around 20 in our pond stream bathing at once.  They flew all over the wooded backyard, almost like in a frenzy.  Were able to identify Nashville, Tennessee, Blackburnian, Am Redstart and a beautiful male Golden-Winged.  Also several Red-Eyed Vireos.  This was our third warbler wave this fall, one in August and the second one for September. This one was the largest.  Its interesting that while Duluth is full of warblers, 240 miles to the south we are too.

Friday (12 September) was my best warbler day so far this fall in  
Duluth. A total of 253 individuals of 23 species was counted (did not  
see Golden-winged, Black-throated Blue, or Connecticut warblers).  
Except for an Orange-crowned Warbler at Indian Point, and a Northern  
Waterthrush and Mourning Warbler at 40th Ave West, all of the warbler  
species were found on Park Point between the bus turnaround and the  
Beach House at the Recreation Area. Also seen were 5 species of vireo  
and dozens of Chipping and White-throated sparrows.
