In the same area as Jeff, Bowdoinham Apple Creek Farm, at dawn today, at least 12 yellow-rumped warblers in a large group, a second group in another area of the farm as well, 6 pine warblers, 2 palm warblers, chipping and white-throated sparrows also returned overnight as well as 8 common flickers, all feeding on the ground. Ruby-crowned kinglet (2) singing. Over 25 species in 2 hours.

Here in Gardiner we had a beautiful male Rose-breasted Grosbeak sunning himself in a bare maple tree in the backyard this morning. There were also singing Ruby-crowned Kinglets, a couple of Yellow-rumped Warblers, a bunch of Chipping Sparrows, a boldly-plumaged White-throated Sparrow and at least eight fly-over Northern Flickers—all seemingly overnight arrivals. And the Red-bellied Woodpecker that has taken up residence in the neighborhood was calling loudly.
