North winds overnight, mid-summer dispersal, shorebird migration, a sunny day and a good deal of patience combined for some interesting viewing this morning at Green-Wood Cemetery, including 4 warbler species, and 2 sandpiper species (spotted and lesser yellowlegs) at the Sylvan Water.  But it looks like things are beginning early.
