Hi everyone.
Although there were a few moments when I thought PP might totally blow into the lake, we had a fun and birdy day today. We (including a couple of extra-curricular birds) had 78 species including 16 species of warblers. (I thought I heard Enrico mention 17 species, so let us know if I missed something (Magnolia?)).
Highlights were another Common Loon flyover, several nice sightings of Green Heron, Broad-winged Hawk seen by a few, lots of Warbling Vireos, White-eyed Vireo, Blue-winged, Prairie, Ovenbird, American Redstart, a very early Blackpoll, 3 thrush species, and great looks at several Orchard Orioles.  Toby had a Rose-breasted Grosbeak and Michele RD had Worm-eating (in the Vale) and Ruby-throated Hummingbird.

Here's the list. Let me know what I missed.
