Today was Sparrows day.  But some warblers are still around the Park, and our backyard.

Sparrows, the biggest surprise was single Lincoln's at the Vale.  Other sps seen were Song, Swamp, Savannah, White-throated, & Indigo Bunting.  Missed the Blue Grosbeak spotted by Tom S. and the group around the Butterfly Meadow.

Warblers: in total I saw 6 sps in the Park (The 7th one was a male BT Blue in our backyard!!), and the best of all was 1 Tennessee seen from the Esdale Bridge.  Others were: Magnolia, Yellowthroat, Palm, Myrtle, Blackpoll.

A great walk today!!
