      Mon, 1 Sept 2008 --  This morning was calm on the coast after the
      blustery conditions yesterday. Westport Vol Fire Dept has done a
      great job of removing trash at Chadbourne Gulch (south of Westport),
      so I was able to easily walk inland on a trail from the east side of Hwy 1
      (at the hairpin curve).  There was a large flock of western migrants back
      there: 2 MacGillivray's, 1 Townsend's, 1 Yellow, 1 Orange-crowned and
      at least 18-20 Wilson's Warblers.  Also present was a Hutton's Vireo,
      Warbling Vireo, Pac-slope Flycatcher, and local resident birds. In the
      sky above an assortment of swallows flew about, accompanied by
      several Vaux's Swifts.
       
      This scene was repeated at Wages Creek to a lesser extent and without
      the MacGillivray's and Townsend's Warblers.  Vaux's Swifts were also
      above the Westport STP & Recycling Center, as well as Wages Creek.
