Subject: Allegheny Co - Boyce Mayview was busy

I spent (way too much) time at Boyce Mayview this morning into afternoon, and had 66 species, listed below.

Adding to that, I spent nearly an hour each just over the border into Washington County at both Peters Lake Park and the Montour Trail at Valleybrook Rd near Rt 19. My total list for 7:19 am - 1:42 pm is 81 species, including 19 species of warbler (plus the chat). One of my better warbler days ever.
