Despite the arctic weather over the Park, and a slow start, when I arrived at the Lullwater Cove area, the I hit the jackpot.  Seven sps of warblers in this area: Northern Waterthrush, Prairie, Myrtle, Pine, Palm,Yellow & Ovenbird.  Early at the edge of Nelly's lawn, I saw a single individual of Black-and-white.
A large crowd following T.S. on his Thursday walk have also a great time at the cove.
Also seen today some Chimney Swifts, 1 Blue-headed Vireo.  I did not visit the Peninsula, and the Lake.  Too cold!!
