In an effort to observe and photograph as many migrants as humanly possible, I have taken off a few days from my job to coincide with the ‘peak’ of migration. I’m calling this stretch of days – Operation ‘Migration Lockout’.
From Thursday through Monday (weather permitting), I will be using every ounce of my time, knowledge, patience, and energy for a chance at seeing the rarest of birds in Dutchess County, particularly warblers.
Perhaps I will see some new species for the first time. Perhaps I will get better photos of previously seen birds. Or perhaps (but hopefully not) I won’t see anything at all. Only time will tell! For all of those who will be doing bird watching over the next couple days as well, I wish you the best of luck! Happy birding!
