Just after I started my walk in from the Grand Ave entrance today, I ran
into a feeding flock moving fast, which finally mostly ended up in the
area from the Cypress Circle to the Memorial Pond.  Excellent birding
from about 9:30 to noon, except that birds kept flitting through your
bino field messing with your concentration.

Tina and I saw lots of:

black-throated greens
yellow rumps
nashvilles
tennessees
chestnut-sideds

At about 11:30, there was a sudden bathing party in the stream (really a
couple of puddles) next to the Memorial Pond.  All of the above were
there for about 10 minutes, about 15 feet away from observers.

Tina also saw a Magnolia warbler near the pond, I saw a Parula taking a
bath, and a female summer Tanager in the Cypress Circle. And a couple of
peewees.

I know everyone's going to Iowa, but TGP might have pretty good birding
tomorrow if these birds hang around.
