I took a walk over lunch time at the Gardiner Waterfront trail and had my FOY Black-and-white Warbler, two Yellow-rumps and a Palm.
The two Yellow-rumps seemed anxious to move on and picked up and flew high up in a northeasterly direction over the river. Guess with the very warm temps they are anxious to get to the breeding grounds ASAP!

I had the pleasure of leading this morning’s Augusta Bird Club walk with 12 great birders in our group and another 6 or 7 in another group led by Doug Suitor. The weather cooperated and finally brought in a few migrants. We had 41 species in our group, including 5 species of Warblers. Here is a link to our group’s list along with a few photos of the ones I could capture. https://ebird.org/atlasme/view/checklist/S45177642
Tomorrow, the club will be back at Viles Arboretum at 7:00 am, weather permitting – and Friday at Hallowell Reservoir Recreation Area – Reservoir Road, Hallowell.
