Subject: [MDBirding] Rocky Gorge migrants (PG County)

Started out slow and the strong breeze didn't help, but things picked up
this morning and I finished with 40 species, including 6 warblers (B&W,
redstart, Magnolia, Black-throated Green & Blue (both FOS here for me),
and Pine). Unusually high numbers of hummingbird and Hairy Woodpecker.
