I scouted Elver park on the southwest side of Madison this morning for my Madison Audubon Society warbler walk tomorrow morning (6 am, meet at the west parking lot next to the softball fields). The cold and rain seems to have suppressed a lot of bird activity, but I was still able to find some good birds. Best bird was a beautiful male blackburnian warbler that was quite cooperative. I also saw rose-breasted grosbeaks, Baltimore orioles, Nashville warblers, black-and-white warblers, chestnut-sided warblers, ovenbirds, indigo buntings, veery, common yellowthroats, least flycatchers, a hummingbird, great crested flycatcher, warbling vireo, Swainson's thrush, wood thrush, Lincoln's sparrow, Tennessee warbler, American redstart, and a tufted titmouse. A full ebird list can be found below. It's supposed to be warmer tomorrow, so I'm hoping that will increase the activity for my warbler walk.
