Birding 202 at FCNC 9/15/12

I didn't much in the way of my own pictures while birding today - so these are not mine above, but these are two new birds for me from our trip today - the orange-crowned warbler and the Townsend's warbler.  There were many Townsend's to see and they were very beautiful to see.   There were also many goldfinches both lesser and American and we spent a lot of time trying to sort them out as their plumage this time of year is mostly not that brilliant breeding plumage that is easier to recognize.  A new call I learned that I think I have a fair chance of remembering into the future is that of the blue-gray gnatcatcher - we had several of those but no real good looks.
