Great birding day at Bolton Notch State Park (spent about 6 hours there), with 60 species seen, including 17 warbler species, with 1 Prothonotary Warbler in the mix. The Prothonotary was seen in the marshy areas along both sides of the trail beyond the old drive-in theater. It was very skittish and flighty in the scrubby understory, but did offer a few good looks. Other migrant highlights as follows: Warblers: Prairie Warbler 2 Ovenbird 4 Northern Parula 8 Black-throated Green Warbler 6 Black-and-White Warbler common Yellow-rumped Warbler abundant Blackburnian Warbler 2 Palm Warbler 14 Magnolia Warbler 1 Worm-eating Warbler 1 Pine Warbler 1 Black-throated Blue Warbler 1 American Redstart 1 Yellow Warbler 5 Louisiana Waterthrush 1 Common Yellowthroat 1 Prothonotary Warbler 1
