Sewickley Park in Allegheny Co. was loaded with birds today as well. Started birding before dawn and came away with 62 species and 19 warblers despite missing yellow, yellowthroat, and yellow-throated.

The previously reported Blue Grosbeak, as expected, was not present, but there was exceptional warbler activity throughout the park. I counted 19 species of warblers, with the following highlights: 1 Blue-winged Warbler, along the Nine Mile Run trail just south of the I-376 bridge A Blackburnian Warbler and a Cerulean Warbler at the junction of the Firelane and Riverview trails Two singing Bay-breasted Warblers on the Lower Riverview Trail A Black-throated Blue Warbler on the trail from Falls Ravine up toward Riverview Hill A Yellow-throated Vireo at the Frick Environmental Center
I totaled 63 species in 4 hours at Frick Park.
On my way home from the bus stop, walking by the hedge at CMU's Doherty Apartments I noticed some movement inside. There was a Northern Waterthrush and a Wood Thrush. A good way to cap off a good morning of birding.
