Chestnut-sided

Redstart
Black-and-White
Ovenbird

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 for you:
