     Spent a good 4 hours this morning hiking a 5.5 mile section of Big 
Sugar Creek that runs through the middle of Cuivre River State Park.  The 
warbler show seemed more like the Ozarks than north of the Missouri River 
but I guess it just showed how great this place really is.  Among the more 
notable  breeders I saw this morning were:

29 Acadian Flycatchers
46 Northern Parulas
11 Yellow-throated Warblers
1 Prairie Warbler
14 Cerulean Warblers (all males singing)
27 Louisiana Waterthrushes
2 Hooded Warblers

     While these were enough to fill my morning there was still a pretty 
decent selection of migrants around which included:

1 Yellow-bellied Flycatcher
1 Swainson's Thrush
2 Tennessee Warblers
1 Orange-crowned Warbler
1 Chestnut-sided Warbler
1 Magnolia Warbler
1 Black-throated Green Warbler
2 Bay-breasted Warblers
1 Blackpoll Warbler
2 Mourning Warblers
2 Canada Warblers

     The 20 species of warblers I saw today beats my entire total for the 
first 4 1/2 months of the year in Arizona.  Gotta love the eastern warbler 
migration.
