A decent morning at Leesylvania. We caught a nice morning wave atop Freestone Point (confederate battery). Warblers seen or heard were blackburnian, bay-breasted, Cape May, blackpoll, Nashville, redstart, yellow-rump (of course), yellow, northern parula, black-throated green, common yellowthroat, yellow-throated, and back-and-white. Also in the vicinity were both orioles, scarlet tanager, eastern kingbird, and red-headed woodpecker. Atop the hillside behind the ruins we added magnolia and black-throated blue warblers. At Bushey Point we added northern waterthrush, worm-eating, and pine. Other migrants/recent arrivals in the park were Swainson's thrush, Acadian flycatcher, yellow-billed cuckoo, and eastern wood-pewee.
After leaving I made a loop through Metz wetlands and added prothonotary warbler to my list. When I got home a white-crowned sparrow was singing in my backyard.
