Chestnut-sided
Mourning
Redstart
Black-and-White
Ovenbird
Blue-winged
Northern Waterthrush

Other highlights have been the migrating flycatchers - Olive-sided, 
Least, Yellow-bellied.  Even a Yellow-billed Cuckoo made an appearance. 
Red-headed Woodpeckers were stealing cicadas from Robins.

One particularly special treat today was a COMMON NIGHTHAWK that Mike 
Thelen discovered perched on a tree limb.  Thanks Mike!  This video is
