Hi Peter,

Reporting in, we had a great walk today. It wasn't super birdy, but there were some nice pockets of warblers, and we ended up with 42 species of birds, 10 warblers.

The highlight was really the group itself: everyone was very enthusiastic and well-behaved, in our corona times. And yet I think we were able to get most everyone on all of the species found.
We had a full group of 12, which I think turned to be an OK size.

Highlights: a Belted Kingfisher catching a fish, a Prairie Warbler up in the butterfly meadow, a very early Blackpoll Warbler, a Cicada that came to life rather unexpectedly, a nice hummingbird moth, and also a Ruby-throated Hummingbird. 

Here's the list. Looking forward to the next one.
