Had a visitor to the banding station that took a shot of one that apparently flew into a window at Lake Lotus August 2nd.
We have been hearing them every weekend since.
Anyone know the average arrival dates for the first fall belted kingfishers?
I saw one this morning and can’t remember ever seeing one this early in the season.

Subject: Eastern Phoebe in September
Just a note for eBird users. Eastern Phoebes don't normally arrive in peninsular Florida before the first week of October, but the database contains reports for all parts of September and even August. If you see an Eastern Phoebe before October 1st, please document it with a photograph or at least a good written description. Be sure to rule out Empidonax flycatchers and, especially, Eastern Wood-Pewees, common migrants throughout September.
