A walk through the woods is curative, no doubt, and the birds are an extra. I've come to really appreciate the home "team", although those migrants are surely seductive.  Forest Park is truly a gem..

I took an hour walk through Kennedy Woods, Forest Park, this morning and noted the following birds and/or their songs.
The experience was like walking through almost any forested area in Missouri, absent of most Missouri warblers. Nonetheless, Forest Park is truly a forested gem in the middle of a major metropolitan area.

Migrants still passing through:
Wilson's Warbler
Chestnut-sided Warbler
Olive-sided Flycatcher (juvenile)

Possible summer residents:
Common Yellowthroat
White-eyed Vireo
Red-eyed Vireo
Acadian flycatcher
Eastern Wood Pewee
Northern Oriole
Summer Tanager
Indigo Bunting
American Goldfinch
House Wren
