Is it just me or is fall migration late this year?  Or did I just miss all the warblers? :huh:   Anyone else feel this way too?

It's right on schedule down here in San Diego. Compare your last year ebird to this year.  I could probably design a calendar based on last year's sightings, and get the birds within the same week this year as last year.

In Michigan I'm guessing most of the warblers have already passed through. September is probably the best month for migrants in your area in fall.

Yeah, but even then when my parents went out it seems like they only had 2 maybe 3 species of warbler.

Could it possibly just be the fact that warblers are a lot harder to detect in fall than spring? They're not as bright and don't sing as much, so if you're not familiar with their call notes you might just pass of the chips and seets without knowing there's a warbler around.
