Migrants have been evident in the Laurel area the past few days, though I've not been able to get out as much as I want. This morning at Rocky Gorge by the reservoir I found 5 warbler species: Blue-winged, Black-and-white, Am. Redstart, Magnolia, & Chestnut-sided. The other bird of interest was a Brown Thrasher. Yesterday at Laurel Waterfront Park we had a good look at a Canada Warbler.
Today's eBird checklist is below. Also had 6 Killdeer on the fields by the dam.
