On a day trip to Rathbun Lake today, large numbers of Red-breasted Nuthatches were present, feasting on the abundant seed crop on the White Pines. There is a major southward movement of these birds underway right now. We also saw two flocks of 100+ Northern Canada Geese flying southward. Other birds of note included a Northern Parula, an Ovenbird, numerous Black-throated Green Warblers, two Black-and-White Warblers and several Yellow-Rumpeds.
