  19. Number observed: 14

    Comments: definite light flight e to w; difficult to be sure regarding individual birds, bu the overall trend was obvious, and 8 individuals were judged to be plausibly migrating

  28. Number observed: 750

    Comments: counted at first, then estimated in last hour; major undercount, as the flight proceeded on a very broad front, including south of the dune line (and our attention was, in fact, occasionally turned toward other birds)

  29. Number observed: 39

    Comments: scarce but regular in heavy BARS flights; this is a large number, probably the seconds highest modern count from this site, following 59 yesterday afternoon; at least partly a consequence of the disproportionate amount of birding talent present in proportion to the frankly paltry volume and diversity of nocturnal migrants in morning flight--an unprecedentedly large capable corps focused on swallow patrol!

  30. Number observed: 24

    Comments: e to w, mostly in duos--very large number for this site

  41. Number observed: 1

    Comments: e to w, bush to bush; unusual date

  42. Number observed: 1

    Comments: rare but regular on outer coast Aug-Oct; lithe sparrow with lark-like profile and bold, complex face pattern, w to e past toll booths, called in flight and seen best by SSM; PM managed a couple of hail-mary photos which later proved useful. Efforts to find it along the edges of field 5 and vbc were unsuccessful, but the LASP re-found there a few days later was linked to this individual by its distinctively worn tail, visible in PM's photo.

  51. Number observed: 4
  52. Number observed: 2
  53. Number observed: 1

    Comments: scarce and irregular but sometimes fairly common late Aug; compact grayish passerine e to w, showing short tail, yellow rump patch, and dark streaks on sides of upper breast; this was our tentative ID based on various observers' impressions, and was corroborated by poor photos.
