I arrived at the Youth Camp at noon 1/2 hour after the morning deluge with at
15+SW wind. Over the next hour there were two short thunderstorms and an
increased fallout. By 2:30 the wind shifted to the West at about 10 knots.
The morning storm produced several inches of rain with numerous residual
pools. Birds included:
 
White-eyed Vireo           8

Red-eyed Vireo           50+
 
14 species of warblers:

Observations: Noon to 4:00 PM    A sluggish Swainson's was the first seen
warbler in an Oak behind the rest
room at 15 feet(height) with 2 active Cape Mays. About 1/2 hour later the ?
same Swainson's was found on the ground in the oak hammock  to the left of
the boardwalk leading to the restroom where it was supposed to be.
Many birds left at 2:30 PM but at 3:45 Ky Warbler, Balt Oriole and the
Painted Buntings appeared.
 
Till the next front!
