    Hello everyone,

    Just thought I would let you know that the southward migration of birds have started. Here is a list of what I have seen in my yard.

    July 6, 2008

    First recorded Louisiana Waterthrush (1) in my yard.

    July 16, 2008

    Scarlet Tanager (1 female)
    Northern Parula (1)
    Ruby-throated Hummingbird (2 males 3 females)

    July 18, 2008

    Orchard Oriole (1 male)
    Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher (1)

    PS: I did not get any pictures because I am not set-up to
    take pictures of birds. One of my niece just had a baby
    boy this past Monday. I have been busy taking pictures
    of her baby. Her sister is expecting a baby girl in about
    three weeks. I will of course be taking pictures of my
    other niece baby when it arrives.
