Late September saw another spanking passage of Yellow-broweds which almost took the day record set last year but fell only a couple short. Unlike the passage birds of last year there was no real prolonged abundance of birds throughout October and I failed to see any after the second week of the month. The 2nd October you could not go anywhere and not see a Yellow-browed; they were everywhere.

I can't get enough of Yellow-broweds with their call being the sound of the autumn. Stunning.
