Late migrants in Racine County

Today I saw my "first of fall" sightings for a whole slew of late migrants, unfortunately signaling that the majority of the passerine migration is coming to an end... Among those was Lapland Longspur, Dark-eyed Junco, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Purple Finch, and Winter Wren.
Also of note was a young Glaucous Gull that seems a little bit on the early side (poor digiscoped shot on the distant breakwall from Carre-Hogle Park in Racine, WI
Also here is a poor shot of a flock of geese going over my house on Sept 30 that contains Canada, Cackling, and Snow Geese:
