Subject: Frick Today, Allegheny County, 9 Warb Species and more
On Clayton Hill, at Frick Park, in Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill neighborhood, many warblers and other passerines swarmed around from the environmental center up to the meadow at the top of the hill. ("The Meadow," to 20 or more of us who regularly birded it from 1985 to the late nineties when Dutch elm disease took out the big elms there.)

Jack Solomon, with Susie Solomon 
P.S.  Apologies for the lack of taxonomic order, but warbs are first in Susie's heart, and l admit,  mine too. The rest of the disorder is a manifestation of laziness.
The wave of warblers we encountered today, in number of individuals at least, reminded us of the Good Ol' Days.
