veery, saw-whet, and magnolia warbler in the high country


Just a note... Yesterday Lesley Penfield and I were up at Beacon Heights and 
heard a saw-whet calling quite incessantly, and starting around 5ish pm.  
Sounded like he was calling from the base of Grandfather, which would make 

Also, had a couple of veery singing from around the rocks at Beacon Heights. 
  As we were leaving, a huge maple was like static, so full of warblers.  
Black-throated blues, black-throated greens, canadas, a blackburnian, and 
magnolias.  Males and females.  Presume this was a mixed flock feeding 
viciously before another night of flight, in that only the black-throated 
blue and greens were singing.

Oh yeah, also got the first least flycatcher this morning on Roby Greene 
road in Watauga Co.  Didnt get a look (on a run) but cant mistake that 

Hope all you twitchers are still enjoying the movement.  Went up to Ohio for 
a few days and the singing seems to be in full swing there, too.
