Hi Peter,

Well, today seemed like the denouement for our Spring migration. There were birds there (70 species we found) but small numbers and lots of females and not much singing at all.

We had 18 species of warblers (not too bad) including Canada (very dull female), Wilson's, Bay-breasted, Blackburnian; also Spotted Sandpiper, Acadian and Least Flycatchers, Osprey, Turkey Vulture, Hummingbird, and Gray-cheeked Thrush.

Here's the list. See you in the Fall (August...)
