Nice about the prothonotary! This morning (5/15) I heard my first Tennessee warbler of the season at Oak Park. Also heard and found was a (softly) singing mourning warbler near the main path above the pond, among the usual suspects (orange-crowned, American restart, and yellow).
I grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas where migratory warblers were much more abundant than here in Sedgwick County. As my teaching semester is over, I think I need to head east in Kansas this week before the warbler season is over.

Oak Park is still low on warbler species. Today, I saw only a few Yellow warblers. But, I did have a surprise. I did find a warbler that I had never seen before. It was taking a bath with a small group of yellow warblers at the Arch pond on the SW corner of Oak Park. It was a female Prothonotary warbler. I have only seen a Prothonotary male twice in OP. Until now, never a female. Maybe, the rain coming in tonight, will help bring some new warblers in.
