Dear birders

Back from China, sitting enjoying the peace of the cooler weather and bird song on my back deck, a flight of about 50 Top Knots went over and settled in trees along the Gloucester River. Then, commotion, a Collared Sparrowhawk circled the trees and about 150 Top Knots exploded and separated into two groups, 50 off in one direction and at least 100 in another.

Top Knots appear in the Gloucester area every year in April / May, usually when the Camphor Laurel trees are fruiting. White-headed Pigeons and Figbirds are also in large numbers - nothing like some fruiting exotics to bring them in.
