Reasonable day for warblers at SMNWR.  Ended up with 13 spp.  Best of all
were multiple Golden-winged.  There were a half dozen behind the visitors
center.  All were males.  Other things of possible interest:  first
Phoebes of the season, and probably the last Eastern Kingbird. Most
interesting was the number of Yellow-billed Cuckoos.  Usually, a good day
would include 5-6 of these guys.  Today I must have seen 50. At one point
there were 15-20 of them moving through the woods as one loose flock.
Aside from redwings and grackles, this was the most common bird of the
day.  For those who like to keep track of migration dates, you might want
this one down for Cuckoos.

Have fun,
