Hi Peter and Rob,

We had 12 participants today including a couple from California.  The day started slowly with minimal activity on Lookout, we were excited to find a redstart.  As the day warmed up and especially in areas protected from wind, we found pockets of activity.   We ended up netting 14 species of warblers, but we worked for them!  Our group ran into Joe Giunta who was leading his own walk.  They had just seen a Hooded Warbler along the Lullwater just beyond the Sumacs.  We looked but didn't find it.  But later, after we finished on the Peninsula, Gus found the bird farther along the Lullwater, beyond the Terrace Bridge.  We got quick, but adequate looks at a young/female type.  Our other good birds were a Wood Thrush on the Penna (also found by Gus) and 8 Green-winged Teal on the lake.
