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.
