This morning started early in foggy conditions at 6:50. A wave went through the birches and the rest of the yard. (Thanks to the dogs for needing a walk.)

Good start. On the way to DHMC (Routine visit) a Great Blue Heron flew right over us in Canaan.
11 AM at home warblers continued at the fountain and in the hawthorn:
Bay-breasted, Tennessee, Chestnut-sided, and a whole yard florish.
Of to Belin for car service: along i-93 in Campton a Double-crested Cormorant flew directly overhead.
Trudeau Road in Bethlehem: a half hour walk started with no birds in the fist 15 minutes to the wetlands by the duck box.
At that point I found two pairs of Red Crossbills. Along the way back I pished two flocks that had BC Chickadees, RB Nuthatches, 2 Am. Redstarts, 2 Blue-headed Vireos, 1 Golden-crowned Kinglet, 1 Nashville, 1 Bay-breasted, 2 Magnolia.
Bak at home at 4PM I walked in to the living room to view the fountain hosting a Tennessee, Chestnut-sided and a Cape May.
5:30 one more romp through the yard with more warblers… DINNER
