Excellent birding day two! Many new birds kept arriving from the south as I observed. I think for the first time I had all of the different types of vireos! Great looks in full sun of many of our most stunning warblers. Yesterday I had many similar warblers and sparrows but the weather was quite different. High humidity but cool and a pleasant scent to the air that night.

Today's list below. I believe most will remain tomorrow as they are not moving north as they feed and seem quite content to be there, for now. Enjoy this while you can, THIS is birding.
