Another surprising day at the Park.  First, today I tallied 11 sps of warblers.  I found most of the sps around Midwood, edge of Quaker Hill, Butterfly Meadow/Lookout Hill, and few at the Peninsula.
Another surprise, was my first sight for the Park of 2 Green-winged Teals, at the Lullwater Cove. I took some pxls.
