(Updating this checklist on Nov. 24, to provide more details about the Cackling Goose & Magnolia Warbler.)

Observations

  1. Number observed: 1

    Comments: in line with about a dozen Canada geese, on Prospect Lake near West drive (about fifty feet out from the grills). Markedly smaller than the Canada geese surrounding it; the beak also seemed a bit short & squashed-in-- slightly different proportions than that of a Canada. A few minutes after seeing this one bird, we ran into two birders nearby who had also just seen two Cacklings--I think the one we saw was one of these?

  22. Number observed: 1

    Comments: By the lake, near the skating rink. Greyish face with white eye-ring (no other v. distinctive facial markings); yellow breast & belly; extremely clear black streaks down flanks, about two on each side. Lively; flitting from ground to lower branches of large trees. We weren't able to see whether or not it had wingbars. As to other poss. species: I don't think it could have been a Nashville (had the marked streaks on sides), or a Prairie (this bird's eyering was distinctly white and it didn't have anything distinguishing its cheek), or a Blackburnian (again, this bird had a pretty 'simple' face).
