  It was a definite lackluster morning today for fall migrants at TGP There
were a few birds of note though.
 MOURNING WARBLER-seen in the thick understory at the beginning of the Gaddy
garden
  BROAD-WING HAWK-seen perched in tree near the ditch
 A few American Redstarts and a single Great Crested flycatcher were  weather
the other migrants seen
  The Cypress circle was basically void of birds except for the resident
Coopers Hawk.
  With these clear night and days the birds are completely by- passing
us(which is great for the birds though)
   Was also wondering the lack of birds may be due to lack of food from
increased mosquito spraying in St Louis City.Today was the first time I have
been to TGP and did not see or hear a crow.What stood out  was that no crows
were mobbing the broad-wing even after it flew off.Strange for sure at TGP.
