Prospect "Cherry fest"

Of note was the active Maryland Monument steps slope with all the fruiting cherry trees and mulberry tree which enticed 2 ORCHARD ORIOLES females, WHITE EYED VIREO juvenile, BLUE GRAY GNATCATCHER, later seen at the path above..

See Keir's great report for this date of COMMON RAVEN and warblers including BLUEWINGED plus the Eastern PEWEE among flycatchers.
