I had a blackburnian a prothonotary and my first cerulean here in 25 years all in the area just around the Darrow bridge
I will have to try for the worm eating warbler tomorrow I was too busy trying to photo the swamp sparrows in that areaglun daewso
In addition to Hale & Auerbach's nice list of species at the Wooded Island/Bobolink Meadow area in Jackson Park today, there was a WORM-EATING WARBLER a little south of the Japanese Garden on Wooded Island this morning, foraging at the cove off lamppost #35.
Anya Auerbach and I birded Wooded Island/Bobolink Meadow this morning and had a ton of migrants with 16 FOYs, including Cape May Warbler, Orchard Oriole, Least Flycatcher and Indigo Bunting.
The highlight was the lawn to the southeast of the Museum of Science & Industry which was covered with warblers, mostly Palm and Myrtle but also including Pine, Tennessee, Nashville, Orange-Crowned and Ovenbird..
