May 9 - Cape May Day at Garret

Today was my best ever day for Cape May warblers as over 10 were seen by me today, and I suspect many more were in the park too.

I found two Olive-sided Flycatchers and of the total 86 species seen today 22 of them were warblers. Always a highlight is the Bay-Breasted Warbler.

Both cuckoos were seen well, as were Least Fly and Eastern Wood-Pewee, several Great Crested Flycatchers and Eastern Kingbirds were also present.

A Common Nighthawk was perched in the tree normally reserved for the Orchard Oriole.

more to follow when time allows
