Nick Bonomo and I caught the Bluff Point State Park morning flight from 6am - 7:30am and walked around the paths in the vicinity of the "hot corner" for another 90 minutes after that. The morning flight was modest (~135 warblers of 6 species, plus other expected species). The walk in afterwards produced another 45 or so warblers but added 9 more species to the total for a nice tally of 15 warbler species for the day. 80% of the warblers were American Redstarts.
Highlights: BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER HOODED WARBLER WORM-EATING WARBLER NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH (2) AMERICAN KESTREL (2) BALD EAGLE WARBLING VIREO (5) PURPLE MARTINS EMPIDONAX flycatchers (7), including a "Trail's" and 3 Leasts
