Extremely heavy wind and rains here in the western panhandle with 11.5 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. But the skies cleared briefly this afternoon before getting cloudy again, and the migrants dropped in. Late, but few seemed very tired. A short while ago, a vicious wind took up out of the north, so the migrants that "fell out" today will no doubt be around tomorrow.

Among those in our yard and immediate neighborhood were the following: CERULEAN, BLACK AND WHITE, SWAINSON'S, LA. WATERTHRSH, NO. WATERTHRUSH, KENTUCKY, YELLOW-RUMPED, PROTHONOTARY (many), PRAIRIE, COMMON YELLOWTHROAT, TENNESSEE, and HOODED WARBLERS.
Also present were WOOD THRUSH, SUMMER TANAGER, ORCHARD ORIOLES, ROUGH-WINGED, CLIFF, AND BARN SWALLOWS, SORA, INDIGO BUNTINGS AND BLUE GROSBEAKS, SONG SPARROW, GOLDFINCHES, C. WAXWINGS, CHIMNEY SWIFTS.
