UMASS Orchard Hill warblers

Spent a foggy, drizzle filled morning at Orchard Hill on the UMASS campus with Ian Davies and Nick Barber and had loads of birds. Certainly my biggest count of Black and White Warblers ever. The numbers of Yellow rumps were impressive too with well over 100 birds present. In addition Ian had a Prairie and Magnolia to add to the list for the day.
