Today while at Bluff Woods Conservation Area, south of Saint Joseph, I observed six species of warblers before the mowing activities hastened my departure from the area.
   
  Nashville Warbler
  Northern Parula
  Chestnut-sided Warbler
  Kentucky Warbler
  Common Yellowthroat
  Wilson's Warbler
   
  About 95 percent of the 150 or so shorebirds at Lake Contrary this morning were Least Sandpipers. Also observed were Semipalmated Plover, Semipalmated Sandpiper, juvenile Short-billed Dowitcher and the omnipresent Killdeer.
   
  All five of the expected swallows were in evidence, as well as a few Purple Martins.
  (Tree, Northern Rough-winged, Bank, Cliff and Barn Swallows)
