Hi all,

Well, despite the (long-anticipated) cold front, a rather quiet morning! You never know...An early flurry at the Shorefield parking lot (though a few birds slipped through unidentified), noisy flyover flocks of Jays, and then it got quiet. Had to struggle a bit to build the list. Had a FOS Winter Wren along Pine Lake, some nice Blue-headed Vireos, and about 8 species of warbler, none in any number. Best was a Blackpoll early and couple of Baybreasteds later on, all along the parking lot. Dropped into Brookside Gardens but it was also quiet...
