We had a great walk at Losen Slote (Creek) Park yesterday, featuring a Hermit Thrush convention — apparently they are not hermits after all…
Fourteen folks saw more than 30 species, including three kinds of wobblers, a cameo appeareance by Pine Siskins (they are moving through the region these days) and a Sharpie (they are moving through the region these days as well).

Thank you for a terrific walk and for posting the list. It was great fun, and inspiring as always. What luck to be there during the Hermit Thrush migration convention! I particularly enjoyed seeing the Black-throated Blue Warbler.
Wish I could have made it. No Hairy Woodpeckers were seen? Lately I’ve been seeing a pair in my yard on a daily basis, which is not normal at all, so I was wondering if more of them seemed to be moving through.
