Hi Peter,

Today's Tuesday walk ran over 7 hours.  We had 18 warbler species, they were very vocal. Dennis heard a Nashville as soon as we entered the park, and as we followed it (some, but not all of us got looks before it headed higher onto Lookout) we were treated to lots of other singing birds, Blackburnian, Worm-eating, Prairie, Parula, Blue-wing among them.  The Prairies were high and hard to see, but everyone got good looks at the Blackburnian.

Kathy found the star non-warbler of the day, the Solitary Sandpiper, at the back of the Lilly Pond  After the group broke up, Kathy, Tripper and a few others continued on to the Penna where they found a Wilson's Snipe, another star bird!

so all in all a very satisfactory day!  Here's hoping to many more to come.

Additional birds seen by Kathy's post-walk crew brings the species count to 70.  
"We saw a wilson's snipe, 2 spotted sandpipers, a tree swallow, a savannah sparrow, 6 laughing gulls, a chipping sparrow, green-wing teal, and a yellow warbler thanks to Tripper"
