With off-and-on rain, birding this MetroPark southeast of Columbus became an adventure. While there was no major fallout, there were fair #s of migrants around, particularly along the Blacklick Creek riparian area and around Ashton Pond. In a 2 hour stint between 8:45 and 10:45, the highlights included:

10 warbler species, with Redstarts, Magnolias, and Black-thr.Greens the most common (4 apiece). Also had Tennessee, Chestnut-sided, Cape May, Blackburnian, Ovenbirds, Yellow, ComYellowthroats
Flycatchers - 10+ WoodPewees, but other species were scarce, with single Acadian & Great Crested
Red-eyed Vireos - 6-7, widely scattered
Wood Thrushes - 2 were along the Maple trail loop
Cedar Waxwings - small flocks at several locations, perhaps 50 in all
Hummingbirds - 2-3 Ruby-throated
Swallows - 8+ Rough-wings. flying around even in the drizzle
Orioles - 3+ Baltimores
