Then very early on Saturday (6:19am), May 5, one flew in and landed in my sweet bay magnolia tree, at eye level, less than 25 feet away from where I sat on the deck with my first cup of coffee. This morning, just after 7am, there were a pair in a red maple in my front yard, and then just after 10am, I watched one feeding in a very large red oak in my backyard. 5 sightings in 4 days is more than I see of this species in several years, usually. All the birds were males. Astounding!

Probably not significant, but I have seen two Cape Mays in the last 3 days -- one in McCrillis Gardens in Bethesda and the other this morning in Rock Creek Park, DC. I saw 9 in all of 2017, and 7 of those were in Cuba!
