Mike’s Observations: These birds were flying at medium heights in groups of 3 to 8. We haven’t seen many of these before, but there were 3-4 waves of them. Lots of other birds moving too. Our field guide says they are some of the first birds to migrate, starting in August. Perhaps the early signs of migration?
