Hi all.
Echoing Richard Biss' note, I had to be away for much of the morning but
saw these migrants in our backyard:
Cape May Warbler
Blackburnian Warbler
Tennessee Warbler
Blackpoll Warbler
Warbling Vireo
American Redstart, male and female
Chestnut-sided Warbler
Bay-breasted Warbler
Yellow-rumped Warbler
Yellow Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler
Magnolia Warbler
Wilson's Warbler
Indigo Bunting.

Many (CMWA, BAWA, BTGW, AMRE, MAWA, BLWA, YRWA and some of the others) were
males in beautiful plumage. It was an unusual, excellent morning.
