Just to add to the reports of Black-throated Green Warblers in the region today, I had one singing in my yard in western Allegheny County late this morning as well. More notably for here, a Louisiana Waterthrush sang for a bit from the little "creek" behind the house, the fourth record for the yard. There is no suitable habitat there to hold a waterthrush through the summer, but on migration one stops by for an hour or a day now and again.

Highlights on this warm day include an early Black-throated Green Warbler, an Eastern Towhee, and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. The White-throated Sparrows are still here, while Brown-headed Cowbirds and Chipping Sparrows are back.
Good birding, Dan Weeks Pittsburgh, Allegheny County
