Ventured down along the Chubb Trail in St Louis Co this morn(World Bird Sanc side)
  looking for new spring arrivals

 Good portion of the Castlewood Loop section of the trail was underwater

 Highlight ,for me anyway, was a singing winter wren.Seems to be a small window of time ,usually around the end of March,beginning of April,when they will actually sing while migrating.
 Observed several hermit thrushes that were singing this morn also

Other birds seen

 -several yellow-throated warblers,louisana waterthrushes,n-parulas,
 -many blue-grey gnatcatchers
-a couple of prothonotory warblers were singing from the flooded bottomlands
- one black and white warbler singing
-at least 3 broadwing hawks soaring across river along the Castlewood SP bluff line
-couple of nesting red-shoulder hawks
-red eye vireos singing
-several migrating yellow-bellied sapsuckers
