Burroughs Audubon did a field trip today at Weston Bend and we saw 18
species of warblers but missed a few that Mark Robbins and Bob had.  Other
warblers that were not mentioned that we had were:
Ovenbird, Tennessee, Yellow, Blk and white, Blackpoll.  When I counted up
Bob's, Mark's and Burroughs list, I got 22 species of warblers and we
missed YB Chat.  Did anyone have him today?  If anyone has any other
warblers I didn't mention.... chime in.  We got killer looks at Canada,
Blackburnian (2), Yellow-throated warbler,  Golden-winged (3), Hooded and
Kentucky .  Great day!  Thanks to all who showed up and lent their ears and
eyes for the field trip!  Mark said he did see a female Cerulean near the
red bench where it has been found in past years.  The birds were not
singing very much today, especially when the temperature started dropping,
so keep your eyes open!  

Have a birdy spring!
