Yesterday afternoon Carol and I checked out the area near the outlet of Saylorville in the Bob Shetler area. In a mucky, smelly area where the floodwater was receding, the ground and trees were alive with warblers, albeit mostly yellow rumped (MANY) and palm warblers (a dozen or more). There were also a couple yellow warblers, a prothonotary and several northern waterthrushes. I think we also had a hooded warbler, but we only got a very brief look. Earlier in the day in the same area, I also found a black and white warbler.
We then went to the Cottonwood area (near the pond) where we found more palm, yellow rumped, yellow and prothonotary warblers.
