Hi Peter,
Reporting in for your blog and the site: 

It was a great day today. Wonderful weather and lots of birds,  with small flocks throughout the areas we visited. We were joined by a National Audubon group led by Martha Harbison, and covered primarily the Vale (very birdy early), Lookout and the Peninsula.

Below is the list. I've included birds seen by Honorary Members of our walk including Ryan (Mourning Warbler) and Gus (Northern Parula, Wilson's W) to give a full report of what we know was in the park.

We had 55 species including 16 species of warblers (or if we don't cheat....13...)
Highlights were at least 5 Blackburnian, 3 or 4 Canada, several Chestnut-sided, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher (seen by 2 or 3 members), and lots of American Redstarts.
