Wow! That's about all I can say. With the fog and impending rain, I started the day at Lundy Acres, a small county park about a mile and a half south of me. There were lots of warblers high in the trees and some lower where I could actually identify them. Best warbler of the day was a Worm-eating, but eye-level Chestnut-sided was fun as well. Heard a Northern Parula which have been scarce this year, for me anyway. Thrushes were everywhere. When the thunder and lightening started I retreated home for a bit and then it was out to Walnut Woods SP. Numbers were staggering and I finally had to give up adding to today's list when I realized my eyeballs hurt. Black-throated Green and Golden-winged were stunning, there were several Blue-headed Vireos, a Veery, and a FOY Yellow-bellied Flycatcher. Wonder what tomorrow will bring.
