Found 2 FOY *Nashville Warblers* at McFarland Park, NE of Ames, this afternoon while leading three field trips for 3 graders. Also saw lots of Ruby-crowned Kinglets; White-throated, White-crowned and Lincoln's Sparrows; plus the kids found a dead Yellow-rumped Warbler male. Had been partially eaten by some critter, but the kids passed it around to learn all the field marks! Before I arrived at 11:30, the nature center staff also had Baltimore Orioles at their feeders (but I didn't get to see one).
