We are closing in on the last of the migration, and leaves are falling fast with the winds of the past few sunny days. Most obvious migrants this week are the sparrows, and many robins are coming through.

In Warroad , Roseau County, Beth  observed AMERICAN REDSTARTS, and WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS on September 28.

Here in Pennington County, on September 26, I saw two late COMMON NIGHTHAWKS bug catching in the early evening while on my way home from work. On September 28, DARK-EYED JUNCOS,  and many AMERICAN ROBINS arrived in the yard. WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS, HARRIS'S SPARROWS, and PURPLE FINCHES joined them on September 29. The finches have been here off and on for awhile.
