I had a great day of birding today at our place in Union Springs. Started before daylight and had 59 species, with 17 warblers, by the time I quit to go to work at 9:45. After work I got one more warbler and 12 more species total, making the final count 18 warblers and 71 sp. on our place today. The warblers were Ovenbird (16), Worm-eating, LA Waterthrush, B&W, Nashville (at least 2), Hooded, Redstart, Cape May, Northern Parula, Magnolia, Bay-breasted, Blackburnian, Chestnut-sided, Black-throated Blue, Palm, Pine, Y-rump, and Black-throated Green. Other good birds (some FOS) included Osprey, Bald Eagle, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Chuck-wills-widow, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Acadian Flycatcher, Veery, Swainson's Thrush (2), Wood Thrush (4).
