Hi Peter,
It was a beautiful day today, but maybe a harbinger that Spring Migration is slowing down.
That being said, we had some great birds and bird-experiences. 

Highlights included Bay-breasted Warblers flying very low near a small hatchout on Lookout, along with low Chestnut-sided, Magnolia, and Blackpoll. The previously ubiquitous Northern Parula have been replaced in part by equally ubiquitous Blackpolls, both males and females.  We had a reasonably cooperative Canada, and a fairly cooperative Gray-cheeked Thrush. At the end we ran into a Least Flycatcher in the vale on the way out. 

Here's the list. Karen, let us know if I've missed anything.
