Wow - what a morning of migrant birds!  Even as we waited for everybody to gather, birds were zipping around and above us.  There seemed to be a high number of Eastern Phoebes, Northern Flickers, and Blue Jays.  Our first warbler was a male Redstart.  Other warblers seen include Common Yellowthroat, Palm, Ovenbird, Black and White, Black-throated Green, and Magnolia.

Green Heron
Canada Goose
Ring-billed Gull
Coopers Hawk
Mourning Dove

At times we didn't know which way to look - there were so many birds!
