I spent the drizzly morning checking out spots along the Hoover reservoir shore, including the Sunbury Rd causeway, Oxbow Island, the Area M Boardwalk & Area N, Area O shore, and the dam. The birds of the day were swallows, with flocks at every stop. Barns & Cliffs predominated, but there were also a few Trees, Rough-wings, and Banks, and all seemed to be actively feeding over the water and shoreline trees. Other notables included:

Caspian Terns - single birds were at the Sunbury Rd causeway and Area O

Herring Gulls - 7-8 adults with Ring-bills along the Boardwalk represents an unusually early bolus.

Ospreys - 1-3 at every stop. A juvenile was still begging around the platform at Area N.

E.Kingbirds - 1-2 at nearly every stop

Prothonotary Warbler - 1 male was still lingering along the old Redbank Rd in Area N

Other warblers - Yellows were at every stop, and a Yellow-throated was still in the pines of the disc golf course at the dam
