Favorable overnight weather conditions resulted in a good birding day at Sandy Hook today. There was overall good diversity. From what I could gather from birders I spoke with, I think there were at least 25 species of warblers present, with very high numbers of redstarts and northern parulas. And if anyone found warbling vireo today, then all the regular vireos were around. Swainson's thrushes and yellow-bellied flycatchers were widespread. In fact, the birds were fairly well distributed throughout the northern part of the Hook, and they remained active throughout the day.
