Worm-eating Warbler
Field Sparrow
Chipping Sparrow
Am. Robin

I am interested in hearing from others regarding the Golden-winged Warbler observation.  I tried to visually locate it, but the bird was singing from 80+ m into a marshy, cleared area.  The song was definitely Golden-winged - potentially this area should be surveyed in the future for breeding Golden-wingeds.
