Indeed, that is quite early.

There are those who believe that extremely hot weather across our country drives some Neotrops and Nearcs southward early. It is often "cooler" near the gulf coast, and often much cooler in the tropics. With global warming, it would reason that such records would be on the increase, and indeed, very early migrants are becoming more the rule than the exception. (I had two different Least Flycatchers in July)

Currently, there are Yellow Warblers and a Hooded in my yard.

Hope all is well,

Jim in Galveston

  Subject: [nflbirds] Chipping sparrow/Alligator Pt

  My wife just emailed me photos of a breeding-plumage Chipping sparrow which showed up at our feeder this morning. Unusually early (for me) to be seeing this species.
