May 25 - Garret Mountain

Spending a longer day here today, and with some good friends, yielded quite a day. Diversity was up and it began with a Green Heron making a return to the pond side. Flycatchers of Swift, Pewee, Least Fly, Phoebe, Great-Crested, and Eastern Kingbird were highlights as well. But the flycatcher of the day was the Yellow-Bellied.

Thrushes of Veery, Gray-Cheeked, Swainson's, Wood, and Robin were seen once again.

On the warbler list we had: Parula, Yellow, Chestnut-Sided, Magnolia, a late Cape May, BT Blue, Yellow-Rumped, BT Green, Blackburnian, Pine, Blackpoll, B & W, Redstart, Ovenbird, N. Waterthrush, Yellowthroat, crushing looks at Mourning, Bay-Breasted, Wilson's, and Canada for 20 species. Absolutely incredible for so late in May !!
