      Greetings,
      August and September have been two of the best birding months in late summer ever. October is starting out just as good. Today there were five warbler species around Nucla and four in our yard. Virginia's Warbler and Townsend's Warbler were not expected. The Black-headed Grosbeak is still present also. The only shorebird was a single Long-billed Dowitcher.
      This evening we watched 75 Turkey Vultures come sailing in to roost just east of Nucla. I wonder how many miles they traveled today. Starting about 5 this late afternoon Common Nighthawks started flying overhead headed either south or west. We counted at least 25. To see a complete list see the attached e-bird report.
      Coen and Brenda
