We took a quick evening jaunt around the pond and had a good catch - 23

The highlights were the Rose-breasted Grosbeak, the Greater Yellowlegs
(which rose up out of nowhere to scare Veronica while I had great looks
from a safer distance), two Ruby-throated hummingbirds, and of course
Orioles all in different states of dress. One was scruffy with a black face
only (don't think it was a hooded), the other very mottled on the head, and
the third in full plumage. There may have been more than one female but it
was hard to tell.
