We had our FOS Golden-crowns today, flagged by eBird. Looking into Brookside Gardens, found a flock of Kinglets in same area was yesterday, they had a few warblers, including a Yellow Palm, with them. Ended up with 9 warbler species but none in any number, including a late Blue-winged that I just glimpsed but which other birders saw well. Best for us was another Philadelphia Vireo near the white house but Jeff Shenot had a juvie Red-headed WP in the picnic area. Unfortunately despite considerable looking, we could not relocate it. Cold front coming, though...stay tuned!
