Big influx overnight
The change in weather was very productive in regards to warbler numbers and diversity. Many first of the season sightings for me today. I covered the same areas as yesterday but ended up with a vast increase in numbers. I ended the day with a total of 17 species including the following: Nashville Warbler,Northern Parula, Yellow Warbler, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Magnolia Warbler, Black-throated Blue Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Black-throated Green Warbler, Blackburnian Warbler, Pine Warbler, Prairie Warbler, Palm Warbler, Black-and-white Warbler, American Redstart, Ovenbird, Louisiana Waterthrush and Common Yellowthroat. A very nice way to start May.
