Hi all,

First WRP report for this late, late spring. A beautiful morning, several seasonal firsts but lacking in warblers, unfortunately. Both Orioles, Scarlet Tanager, first Wood Thrush, Acadian FC, etc. but only one Pine Warbler. We had a singing Warbling Vireo but missed a Blue-headed seen by other birders. The warming trend should improve things, however.
