May 23 - Garret Mountain

Today was slightly slower here, as diversity was less than recent days. Highlights are the flycatching birds of Chimney Swift, Pewee, Least Fly, Phoebe, Great-Crested Fly.

The vireos put in a good show with migrant Blue-Headed making a return to join the breeders of Warbling and Red-Eyed. Swallows of Rough-Winged and Barn were seen.

Warblers represented were: Parula, Yellow, Chestnut-Sided, Magnolia, BT Blue, Yellow-Rumped, BT Green, Blackpoll, B & W, Redstart, Ovenbird, N. Waterthrush, another Mourning, C. Yellowthroat, Wilson's and Canada for a total of 16 species here today seen, or heard, by me.

Sparrows of Chipping, Savannah, Lincoln's, and White-Throated continue as well.

Another report will come tomorrow...
