Late Fall Warbler Birding

In the last couple of weeks I have been birding in the Black Beach Road area of Lorneville looking for late fall migrants.  There were a few small flocks of warblers still around.  More sparrows were starting to appear, especially Song and White-throated Sparrows.  There were many Ruby-crowned Kinglets with the warblers.  Vireos were abundant especially Blue-headed Vireos, and on one trip, Philadelphia Vireos were seen.  Especially pleasing to see were an Orange-crowned Warbler, a Blackpoll Warbler, and a Tennessee Warbler.  At one point after hearing a loud raucous bird call, a Gray Jay appeared on top of one of the conifers.
