I keep up with my birding buddies and friends in Georgia. Recent reports on GABO show that there have been some large fall-outs thanks to heavy rains. It looks like they are all traveling together thanks to weather.
One report from Kennesaw Mountain (an IBA): There were 16 species of warblers which included at least five CERULEAN WARBLERS (3 male and 2 female), the first BAY-BREASTED WARBLER of the season for me, Ovenbirds, Kentucky, Black-throated Blue Warblers. Good number of Scarlet and Summer Tanagers, lots of Red-eyed Vireo, along with Blue-headed, White-eyed and Yellow-throated Vireos and only one Wood Thrush.
Another well-known as a "warbler trap" had the following report of 17 species: Ovenbird, 1, Worm-eating Warbler, 1, Louisiana Waterthrush, 1, Northern Waterthrush, 2, Black-and-white Warbler, 1, Orange-crowned Warbler, 1, Hooded Warbler, 5, American Redstart, 4, Cape May Warbler, 1, Northern Parula, 2, Chestnut-sided Warbler, 1, Blackpoll Warbler, 2, Black-throated Blue Warbler, 1, Black-throated Green Warbler, 1
Barring really bad weather between here and there during the next week or so, Northern Ohio's festival should be right on track for some wonderful warbler viewing.
