April 29 - Garret Mountain

I spent about 90 minutes here today and was rewarded with the best migration of the year this far.
Numerous Yellow-Rumped Warblers, Palm Warblers, Black-and-White Warblers were about, as were hundreds of White-Throated Sparrows and many Hermit Thrushes. Blue-Headed Vireos put in a strong showing, but in spring it is always about the new arrivals & today there were plenty.

Black-Throated Green, Black-Throated Blue, Yellow, and Northern Parula were found. Also I heard Baltimore Oriole.

With the warming weather I suspect that the next 2-3 days will be even more diverse than today...
