Hi all,

A very cold and quiet start - just the usual early movement of Jays and Flickers. It wasn’t until things warmed up along Pine Lake that the first warblers showed. At the end we ended up with 7 species, most numerous being Black-and-White and Parula, but the best a handsome male Canada which gave good views. Other birders saw a Northern Waterthrush which we missed. A very brief stop at Brookside Gardens and Nature Ctr. found another small warbler flock as well as lingering hummers in the Salvia garden.

Still rather slow, though, compared to previous years...
