I stopped by Blackburn Park in Webster Groves (St. Louis Co.) for about an hour this afternoon.  I had my spare binoculars with me, and carrying the baby really limited my mobility, but I still had some good birds.  I'd recommend this park to others over the next few weeks, especially the west edge of the park along Edgar Rd.

Great Crested Flycatcher, 1
Eastern Wood-Pewee, 1
Red-eyed Vireo, 1
Swainson's Thrush, 2
Gray-cheeked Thrush, 1

Northern Parula, 1
Tennessee Warbler, 1
Nashville Warbler, 2
Black-throated Green Warbler, 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler, ~10
Palm Warbler, 5
Black-and-white Warbler, 1
Ovenbird, 1

Indigo Bunting, 1
Orchard Oriole, 1
Eurasian Tree Sparrow, 1

Also, this evening I watched a flock of ~200 Chimney Swifts flock over an old smokestack in Shrewsbury and swirl like a tornado before streaming into the smokestack.  While watching them, I had my FOY Common Nighthawk and a Black-crowned Night-heron.  Also a few bats flew over, I'm guessing Big Brown Bats (but I'm not great at bat ID).
