Hi Peter,
We had a strong, hardy, courageous group today...who persisted through the early rain and did our usual tour of the park. It was very, very quiet...although there were a couple of pockets of birds on Lookout and around the lullwater.
Highlights were the Blackburnian that Angie found and curated, at least 4 Canadas, a very nice Bay-breasted, a cooperative Green Heron, ultimately, 11 species of warblers and 61 species overall.

Here's the list.
