I birded Watkins Mill SP (Clay Co.) from 5:15 - 9:45 a.m. today. A  
pretty good showing of migrants, though numbers were low and voices  
quiet on this dreary, cool morning. The nighthawk and Blackpoll  
Warbler seemed a little ahead of schedule for this part of the state.  
Carolina Wren voices are still notably sparse in my part of Clay  
County - I didn't hear any today. Migrants included:

Common Nighthawk - 1
Whip-poor-will - 4
Great Crested Flycatcher - 1
Eastern Kingbird - 6
Yellow-throated Vireo - 1
Blue-headed Vireo - 1
Warbling Vireo - 2
House Wren - 2
Sedge Wren - 2
Ruby-crowned Kinglet - 5
Swainson's Thrush - 5
Wood Thrush - 1
Gray Catbird - 6
Tennessee Warbler - 7
Orange-crowned Warbler - 5
Nashville Warbler - 10

American Redstart - 1
Prothonotary Warbler - 1
Louisiana Waterthrush - 5
Kentucky Warbler - 1

Lincoln's Sparrow - 1 in full song. Wow.
