I made a quick run to Lew Clarkson park in Johnston this morning, arriving just as the rain stopped and staying about 20 minutes. It was a Warbler Palooza. Tiny birds were crossing the power line clearing at a rate of at least 12 per minute.
Unfortunately, they weren't landing where I could see them (deeper in, rather than just on the edge), and the only birds I could identify were the ones in the bushes: Common Yellowthroat, Yellow, and my FOY Wilson's. There were also some larger song birds and flycatchers.
