Swallow tailed Kites over zoo; other migrant reports

While leading a UNO field trip to the Audubon Zoo this morning, I spied four Swallow-tailed Kites circling high over the Africa Savanna exhibit.  They drifted northeast.

Only other migrants I noted at the zoo were singing White-eyed Vireo and Hooded Warbler, neither of which nests nor winters there.

Observers have reported a fallout in progress at Grand Isle- 19 warbler species before noon today.  A good warbler morning report has also come in from Jean Lafitte National Park south of town.

Good day to get out and look!
