Oh my gosh, yes I meant to type summer tanager not scarlet tanager giving the picky-tuck. Typo, can't get anything past you folks =) I have in previous years heard scarlet giving call and song during NFC watches, and rose breasted grosbeak too, what fun!!!
Oh and on kerr lake count yesterday I found a jaeger from palmer point on the va side, either pomarine or parasitic, a really tough light juvenile, my blurry distant photos don't help much. It was seen again by va birders later in the day so maybe they got better images. It was close to the state line at one point, so almost on my warren county list, could maybe see from Kimball pt. Possibly the same bird seen from Staunton River park last week, storm blown.
