Fall migration 2009 underway – Mourning Warbler

I have checked the Noble Research Center on the following dates (Aug. 20, 22, 25, 28, and Sep. 3) with the following results: no casualties yet. Today (Sep. 7), I found the first casualty of the 2009 season: a hatch year male Mourning Warbler (fat = 2).
