Sept. 2:

Made the trip down to Chester today with daughter Mae-Mae and Ted Murin to
view the Rufous Hummer-- spunky little bird put on a great show.  Made me
homesick for western mountains.

Later at the Champlain Valley Fair in Essex Jct. I viewed a single Common
Nighthawk working the floodlights at dusk, last seen heading for the food
court no doubt to load up on fat for migration.
