With Brent at the Crab Meadow Beach Hawkwatch and Morning Flight Observation Area (CMBHAMFOA). Incredibly overwhelming at times with a constant stream of myrtle warblers and numerous other birds flying along the beach.

  56. Number observed: 8
  57. Number observed: 12

    Comments: given 2.5 hours of morning flight, likely not all that of a high count. all east to west joining tremendous myrtle warbler flight. very yellow below with dark tail; often calling.

  58. Number observed: 5212

    Comments: Huge flight, overwhelming at times. All east to west over the tidal outflow.
    Sometimes in singles or doubles, but often in flocks of 40 or more. Initially counted individually, but after 3,000 or so we switched to more blocky, though still accurate, counting methods. Most of these birds were quite close and low (eye level), allowing great views as they passed which made for an excellent quality-control for ID, in addition to their distinct call-note and flight style.
    Many of these birds would land on the western side of the inlet before carrying on, which was quite a sight to see as they jam-packed the trees and bushes.
