Not too many birds left to find in this part of the state at this time of year, but I did add two good birds to my Year List this morning.

279. Cerulean Warbler
280. Golden-winged Warbler

The Golden-winged Warbler was my 200th species for West Virginia this year.

Two new birds today, one expected and my main target, and the other completely unexpected.

281. Least Flycatcher
282. Northern Bobwhite.

Bobwhites were common in West Virginia about 40 years ago, but they’re now almost extirpated from the state. There are obviously a few around, but are rarely recorded. I saw one individual not far from where I saw these (there were three) four years ago, but none since then.

Bumped into a singing male today in one of my study sites. They are a rare visitor to Öland with a few singing males every year and this is the first time I've found one in my areas. Very pleased!
