Hi Peter,

We had a very enthusiastic group today; and a fairly birdy park to offer. Most of the birds seemed thinly spread out over all of the areas we visited, without too many really active "pockets" other than the vale, where a fruiting tree offered at least 3 Tennessee Warblers, Baltimore Oriole, Scarlet Tanager, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Wilson's Warbler, and more.

Overall we had 16 species of warblers including Wilson's, Blackpoll, Prairie, and Tennessee. We also had a somewhat brief Philadelphia Vireo on Lookout.

The bird of the day may have been a Common Nighthawk probably spooked from its roost by a young Red-tailed Hawk.

Here's the list along with a Prairie Warbler shot.

Best regards,
