Golden-crowned Kinglet and White-throated Sparrow around our home this morning. These short-distant or temperate climate songbirds have started their fall migration through northwest Ohio. But in early October, we still have some Neotropical migrants passing through, creating the potential for an odd mix of birds that we don't see during the more well-defined and scheduled spring migration. Check this out. 13 years ago today, Sun, Oct 5, 2003, I visited the Magee Marsh boardwalk, and I created this blog post after posting the info to the Toledo naturalists message board. A cuckoo and a sapsucker on the same day. Red-eyed Vireo and a junco on the same day. Possible in early October. Highly unusual here in the spring.
