Hi Peter,

We had a very small group today, but the birds were great!
At first I thought our bird-of-the-day was going to be a caterpillar...but then birds started showing themselves or calling and it went on and on all day.

The highlights were 10 species of warblers including both Waterthrush, Cape May, Blue-winged, N Parula, Chestnut-sided, Magnolia. We also had calling Alder and singing Willow and perching Yellow-bellied! There were 3 great-blue Herons and a Great Egret attending what we heard was a fish die-off; and we also had a singing White-eyed Vireo.

All in all a surprisingly birdy day.
