In a morning visit to the park, I saw two Cape May Warblers bathing simultaneously at the water hole, followed by two more sightings of single Cape Mays. This was around 7:30 AM. The park was full of singing warblers, the most abundant by far being Northern Parulas, then Yellow-rumped and Nashville Warblers. Three Tennessee Warblers were heard, one by the water hole and two others by the Union Turnpike exit.
An evening visit was rewarded with the sighting of a female Summer Tanager (thanks to the birders for pointing it out) and, after everyone left, a Red-headed Woodpecker made a brief appearance near the water hole.
