April 22 - Dos Vireos

This morning I began my spring ritual of birding Garret Mountain each morning for a little bit before work. Migration was lighter than expected, and I did not stay long.

Highlights were several Blue-Headed Vireos, and a single Yellow-Throated Vireo shown to me by Chris T. The Yellow-Throated Vireo was early in the season, as my prior early-arrival record was from April 28 back in 2004.

The only warbler species I saw were Yellow-Rumped and Palm. A few Brown Thrashers were seen. I'll return tomorrow, hopefully with better results.
