From Linda Ewing

Hi, Peter! As I mentioned when I saw you this morning, I had good luck with 
water thrushes (northern, I presume, but I don't pretend to be able to tell them 
apart): 6 sightings of at least 3 birds . . . in the Vale, by the south side of 
the Lake (across from 3 sisters), and repeatedly in the Lullwater (probably 
multiple birds but not sure). 

Highlight was a male indigo bunting - molting  but with lots  of blue visible - 
by the butterfly meadow.  Also on Lookout were both northern and orchard 

Other than that: lots and lots of black and white warblers, yellow warblers and 
hummingbirds. Also saw at least two spotted sandpipers working the south shore 
of the lake.

Eni Falci and Michele Dreger also reported several waterthrushes as well possibly a Louisiana at Ricks Place.
