Hi all,

Still rather slow despite NW winds and clear skies overnight. However we managed 7 species of warbler plus other migrants. We had to leave a bit early and thus missed the days’s best bird, a Black-billed Cuckoo by Pine Lake, seen by several other birders. Most numerous migrants for us were Redstart and Chestnut-sided Warbler and Red-eyed Vireo. Robin, Catbird, Flicker and Blue Jay numbers down. Stopped by the Nature Center pond on way home and added a few birds to the list.
