I walked the mountain bike trail in Minor Park between 10 and 11 a.m. this 
morning. There are a few muddy spots in the trail, but they are easily 
avoided.

The big problem with Minor Park this morning was -- not many migrants. 
Acadian Flycatchers and White-eyed Vireos were singing away, but, if there 
were any migrants there, they were silent. The only ones I saw were a 
Wilson's Warbler and a Gray-cheeked Thrush.

The foregoing notwithstanding, this is the third week of May - i.e. time for 
a Connecticult Warbler to show up; the river bottom land along the Blue 
River in Minor Park fits Dr. Paul McKenzie's description of  the kind of 
habitat to look for Conn. Warblers, and one showed up there at this time 
last year.   Let's keep trying.
