Hello, this is an October 1 update of the Carolina Rare Bird Alert featuring

BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPERS can be seen at the Super Sod Farms in Orangeburg,
SC. Three birds were present on 9-23. Be sure to check in at the office
before driving along the dirt roads there.
One of the more sought-after fall migrants is the CONNECTICUT WARBLER. this
warbler has been reported twice in the last week. On 9-26 one was at
Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo, NC; and today 10-01 there was one at Duck, NC
in the Founder's Ridge area.
Some of the rarer sparrows have been found on the Outer Banks in the last
week. LARK SPARROWS were at the Old Coast Guard Station on the south side of
Oregon Inlet and the Visitor Center at Pea I. NWR. A CLAY-COLORED SPARROW was
at the ferry terminal at the south end of Ocracoke I. ; and a VESPER SPARROW
was seen at the north dike of North Pond at Pea I. NWR.
