Folks We had about 30 birders turn up for the monthly walk today at Jackson Park. It was a little cool and misty to start the day, so the birding was a little slow. When the sun finally broke through we did have a few mixed flocks that moved through the maples. The most abundant warbler had to be American Redstart with the highest number being at least 8 in one stretch of the Warbler Trail. We did manage 12 species of warblers, but numbers were relatively low for the season- maybe the weather and impending storms have kept them north. Hopefully the numbers will pick up in the next week or so.
