Wasn't birding per se this eve at Castlewood SP but while running along the Kiefer creek trail noticed a lot of activity near the water.
 Basically seeing birds in areas where they have been absent all summer.Black and white warblers as well as american redstarts behind the office
 Both nest (black and white rare nester) but are usually habitat specific and not usually found in the shrubby stuff along the creek until post-breeding dispersal or fall migration
 The most obvious sign that Fall migration is starting was the number of nighthawks I saw both at Castlewood and driving back home around Ballwin this eve
