Hi all,

An active morning at Wheaton Regional Park although, alas, none of us were able to reconnect with Nathan Tea’s Connecticut Warbler. A mixed flock early in the picnic area, then a lull, and then we found another flock working the edges of Pine Lake. A quick check into Brookside Gardens found no hummingbirds, but another small flock near the native plant garden. We had eleven species of warbler and our first of season Sapsuckers.
