The Black-throated Gray Warbler continues for its 7th straight day at Noel
Dorwart Park, first seen this morning near the dirt "goatpath" that runs
from the Trestle Spur along the creek. Yesterday evening Seth and I watched
it just west of the Creek Trail, so it is still frequenting this whole
general area. Nearly all other migrant warblers and vireos have continued
south, and it has been loosely associating with kinglets lately. Listen for
its flat, metallic chip note and kinglet calls to help find the bird.

Also of interest was an Orange-crowned Warbler in the large field east of
Farmingdale Rd, which worked the treelines and mugwort patches. Photos of
both will be added to this checklist soon.
