Comments:
Greg Lasley and Barry Zimmer leading a VENT trip. Violet thunderstorm started at 2 AM; rained hard until 7 AM, then moderate rain until 9 AM. 20-30 mph winds out of the SE the rest of the day. Major fallout of migrant passerines at Garden Key. Unable to check Loggerhead Key as the boat captain said in the winds we would not be able to dock there, so the day was spent on Garden Key. Very large numbers of many species of migrants were present. This was the most spectacular day I have ever spent on the Dry Tortugas with many birds in high numbers. This fallout is mentioned several times in American Birds 45(3):436-438.

This record is cited in American Birds 45(3):438. I noted that these birds flushed from the parade ground like flocks of longspurs and this is quoted in American Birds. I have never before or since seen so many Palm Warblers at one place and time.
