Spent the morning at high cliff and had a pretty slow start to a decent morning of warblers. remarkable number of GOLDEN WINGED a couple BLUE WINGED one BLACK THROATED BLUE the usual PARULAS BLACK THROATED GREEN YELLOW NASHVILLE BLACK AND WHITE MAGNOLIA CHESTNUT SIDED BLACKBURNIAN and GNATCATCHERS also a singular Indigo Bunting
Went to Heckrodt before noon but it was dead.
I spent the entire afternoon on the backwaters of the wolf and had an amazing number of warblers although most of them were butter butts (well over 100). I put my canoe in across the road from the old stone arch bridge just north of the shiocton airport on hwy 187. The water levels have gone down since last week but they are still plenty high for me to sneak among the trees and explore the flooded forest in my wenonah. In addition to all the YELLOW RUMPS I saw ~ 5 PROTHONOTARY warblers and quite a few CAPE MAYS. Most of the others were just here and there a single or couple BLACK THROATED GREEN, PARULA, BLACKPOLL, CHESTNUT SIDED, BLACKBURNIAN, NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, also lots of orioles, a few grosbeaks, and a spotted sandpiper
That leaves me with about 15 warbler sp. for the day and I believe I earned every one today. lol
