Kim Springer rustled up a number of us local birders this morning at Buhl Park, Hermitage, and we were rewarded with somewhat of a fallout in the woods just east of the Casino parking area. For an hour or more there were multiple warblers in sight frequently. We saw a total of nine warbler species mainly in the many birches and other small trees. Counting was difficult! Kim's conservative warbler listing on eBird: Tennessee Warbler 2 Nashville Warbler 2 Cape May Warbler 1 Magnolia Warbler 1 Bay-breasted Warbler 1 Blackpoll Warbler 1 Palm Warbler 1 Yellow-rumped Warbler 6 Black-throated Green Warbler 1
A Winter Wren, chipping a lot and seen by most of us, was another highlight. Ruby and Golden-crowned Kinglets were numerous, especially when we went over to the Julia Buhl garden near the south entrance.
