Prospect April 19th WEVI continues, new arrival

WORMEATING WARBLER continues, seen in the Lullwater south side below where the feeders are normally situated. Look for the brushy , broken twigs area by the path. It was latest seen 310 by Linda.

 Also seen today on this brief note despite a very busy day planting for me, WHITE EYED VIREO in the Lullwater below the Terrace Bridge on the Breeze Hill side ( not far from the Worm Eating Warbler ).

 YELLOW WARBLER was reported by Keir seen in a tree above the Maryland Monument. But my last sighting was quite rewarding at the end of my work day when I came back in my electric vehicle to our nursery area at 9th street, and a YELLOW WARBLER was waiting for me , bathing in a puddle of water that was used to washed down a vehicle. Not bad seeing a very bright male bird very close...
