Most of yesterday's big flock disappeared overnight.  However, today there
were still a few migrants of almost every specie seen yesterday.  Roy Book
and Luddy Lambertson birded with us today.  Later we met a trio of birders
from New Smyrna and Courtney Carlson who had brought wife Sue, all hoping to
see the male Golden-Winged Warbler.  Everyone went home happy for this
beautiful bird gave us many close eye-level views, seemingly oblivious to
all of us watching.
