Lively morning spent mostly on Lookout.  Immediately heard the West Drive/Center Drive Mourning Warbler, about 100 ft up from the Do Not Enter sign.  He sang continuously at 6:40am, moving towards his namesake signs until I left him 10 minutes later. 
An hour later, at the SW corner of Butterfly Meadow, I saw another male Mourning Warbler preening on a fence inside the planted area.  Gave great looks before he skipped eastward towards the Switchback Trail.  A good assortment of warblers still around. 
Loads of empids on Butterfly Meadow and around Lookout's slopes, along with a female Blue Grosbeak.  Only a Least Flycatcher vocalized for me, and had a good look at a silent yellow-bellied candidate. More around.
