May 20 - Garret Mountain

Back at familiar haunts, I did see a new arrival in the Green Heron which I had not seen here yet this year. Empid Flycatchers are coming in now and I saw a Willow Flycatcher, along with Least, Phoebe, and Great-Crested.

The Gray-Cheeked Thrushes continue, as does Swainson's and Wood. Cedar Waxwings showed up as well. The warblers for the day were: Nashville, Parula, Yellow, Chestnut-Sided, Magnolia, BT Blue, Rump, and BT Green continue and I heard my first Pine Warbler in some weeks. The fantastic Bay-Breasted show of this year rolls on, and Blackpoll, B & W, Redstart, Ovenbird, N. Waterthrush, C. Yellowthroat and Canada are still present. Wilson's Warbler made its first appearance for me this year.
That's a total of 18 species today.
