This may be my only outing this Spring, so I'm gonna post! First went to Dolph, which was slow, but netted ten warbler species, highlighted by a nice, near eye level Blackburnian.
Then I parked at the entrance to Furstenburg Park at Geddes, so I could bird there, and then walk the S. Side of the River to the Arb, all of which I did.
The entrance to Furstenburg was very nice (And by this i mean the areas surrounding the two bridges.) There was one Orange-Crowned right near the entrance, and then 3 together at the far end of the second bridge. At this spot there were also two N Parulas, (one persistently near eye-level),a Tennessee Warb, among many palms and Yellow-Rumps and a smattering of other things.
I then walked to the Arb and walked around inside the Arb and saw almost no migrants. Past the W end of Dow Prairie, W of the Pines, where there is a path up to the railroad tracks, where one can cross to the other side (although they are making it more difficult), there was a flock of Warblers, with maybe 10 Palms, and a gorgeous bright Cape May, and two more Orange-Crowned!
