September 30 - Allendale Celery Farm

This morning I stopped at Garret Mountain. Many of the species I saw yesterday were again present, and a few new ones as well. Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers, Osprey, Raven, BH Vireo and RE Vireos, Lincoln's Sparrow, Indigo Bunting, Rose-Breasted Grosbeak.

After birding here briefly I was called away by my buddy Rob F., who told me of a Clay-Colored Sparrow at the Celery Farm. I rushed over to Allendale to see this mid-western sparrow.
I saw it as soon as I arrived and then later we had fantastic views for about a half-hour or more.

Also seen here today were several Purple Finches, Nashville Warbler, Palm Warbler, and Northern Waterthrush.
