Rad Widmer and I birded Castlewood State Park along the river trial and 
bluff on a picture-perfect morning!

Best part of the trip was hearing nearly continuous singing by 
YELLOW-THROATED WARBLERS, perhaps a dozen different vocalists of this 
species...more than I've ever figured on a single trip.

Also saw or heard the following birds of note:

Cooper's Hawk
Red-shouldered Hawk
Broad-winged Hawk (perched in a tree on the bluff with a rodent in its 
talons)
Northern Parula (many of them, but still outnumbered by Yellow-throated 
Warblers)
Yellow-rumped Warbler
Black and White Warbler
Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
Brown Creeper
Fish Crow
Eastern Phoebe
Eastern Bluebird, etc., etc.,  usual suspects... but on such a gorgeous day, 
all seemed uncommon.
