Moorecroft Regional Park has been astoundingly dull for birds of late. Essentially, all of the breeding neo-tropicals have moved on, and very few migrants are being seen. This afternoon, I did see a spark of hope though. There were four Hammond's Flycatchers chasing each other around in the cedars near the beaver pond. In the cattails surrounding the pond, were three Common Yellowthroats. These are the first warblers and flycatchers that I have seen in the park in several weeks. Things should pick up nicely as we move into September.
