Went out to EBCA last night to see if I could re-find the shorebird extravaganza that Paul saw on the NAMC (right after I left, of course). I found a few small flocks of Least Sandpipers, Lesser Yellowlegs, and Pectoral Sandpipers, along with a few Dunlin and Semipalmated Plovers mixed in. Nice, but not what I was hoping for.

The Canada Warbler and Mourning Warbler were both along the Katy Trail as it runs along the east side of Eagle Bluffs. Best look at a Canada Warbler I've ever had- sitting out on a twig over the trail, singing it's head off. The trees were dripping with Blackpoll and Tennessee Warblers. It was a fun day.

Yesterday, I also had a Cape May Warbler visit my backyard for about 10 minutes, also singing his head off in the open. Nice yard bird!
