People saw Bob Antonio's report from Burcham yesterday -- things were pretty much as good today though perhaps overall numbers not quite as high. Peter and I walked for a couple hours and ended up with 14 warbler species:
1 N. waterthrush (by north creek) 1 golden-winged warbler (n end -- singing and gave us great looks) 4 black and white 4 prothonotary (including one in the neighborhood nearby, at 5th and Ohio -- hope he found his way down to the park!) 3 tennessee 6 orange-crowned 2 Nashville 7 N parula 1 blackburnian -- P and I both heard it on the north end, but couldn't locate it in the bad light 21 yellow -- probably an undercount on my part; they were all over. 5 blackpoll -- several along the river trail and a couple at the north end 2 palm (I think Peter had more like 6) 50 yellow-rumped -- maybe sort of thinning out but still a lot 1 black-throated green singing and hanging around at eye level at north end
I thought I heard and saw a chestnut-sided on the north end but couldn't quite get my bins on it.
I also got my FOY red-headed woodpeckers (2 at the far north end), all 4 expected vireos, lots of swainson's thrushes, a summer tanager, several indigo buntings. Clearly the birds were stuck below all those cold fronts and are just pouring through now. Makes it really hard to go to work! :)
