Hi Peter,

Good seeing you today!  Today was one of those spectacular days you know you will remember forever.  The trees were truly dripping with birds we didn't know where to look first.  They were low down and active and easy to see.  While we didn't get any super-rare birds, we got eyes-full of 16 species of warblers.  5+ Cape May and Tennessee.  We had a Bay-breasted that we got to contrast with Blackpolls.   

Looks like winds will be from the west and south for the next few days so i hope they stick around for Thursday!

I am attaching a photo from walk participant Martha Weintraub.  i'm sure Janet got some good shots as well.
