Sensing that a fallout is on the way, I checked Hoover Dam after work between 3-3:30 PM, and despite the time, found migrants in the forest patches below the dam. The total included
E.Wood Pewee 2
Warbling Vireos 2
Gray Catbird 5
Cedar Waxwings 10
Cape May Warbler
Blackpoll Warblers 2
This is an unusually good total for this site in the afternoon, so we may be in the midst of a good migrant wave. Waterbirds above the dam were less exciting, but did include 12 cormorants, 100 Ring-billed Gulls, and 2 Herring Gulls.
