Mid-September conjures up visions of migrating shorebirds, songbirds, and waterfowl all joining together under ideal natural lighting for one perfect moment of birding. Sometimes, that even happens. At other times, unfortunately, September can make you feel like all those birds did meet, but nobody invited you along. How’s mid-September treating you so far?

Thankfully, the answer is no, that the grand dance of avian irruption, digression, and vagary never really ends. Don’t give up on the next season of birding just yet.
