The cottonwoods had many warblers yesterday afternoon at Gilbert's Riparian Preserve (Water Ranch). Lots of yellow-rumped warblers (both Audubon and one or two Myrtle), Orange Crowned Warblers plentiful as well. If you looked for warblers which weren't regularly chirping you could concentrate on a few specialties.
At least one Northern Parula was in the cottonwoods by the three benches.
A Chestnut-sided Warbler was in the cottonwood by the Mason Bly single bench. One even came low for a closer view.
