Hi All

Nice sunny morning. Didn't bird too hard, found some nice warblers (male & female Cape May + 3 Bay-breasted) and had a nice low flyover Loon. Seemed like the sort of day that would turn up rare things if you were really working for them.

Lookout Hill and surrounds def most active, also some nice warbler action in the cypress trees at base of Binnen Falls.
