Lots of things going on this weekend so if birding was to occur at all, it had to 
take place close to home and/or in areas of kid activities. So be it! 

Blue-winged Warbler--1 (heard first, then seen in morning light!)
Orchard Orioles—aplenty

*N Highway near Tiffany Springs Park (backroads off of N)
Blue Grosbeaks aplenty—at least 6 in 2 different locations on off of N; heard 
first as driving by with windows down, then seen.
Observation: House Sparrows roosting/nesting in Cliff Swallow nests.
