May 8 - Garret Mountain

Today I birded with Bill E. and new friend Simon K. and together we had great views of many warbler species today as well as many other species. On the day I recorded 20 warbler species with highlights being Cape May, Bay-Breasted, Wilson's along with Tennessee, NAshville, Parula, Yellow, Chestnut-Sided, Magnolia, BT Blue, Yellow Rumped, BT Green, Blackburnian, Prairie, Blackpoll, Black-and-White, Redstart, Ovenbird, Northern Waterthrush & Common Yellowthroat.

Flycatchers seen were a pair of Olive-Sided, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Least, and Great-Crested.
Thrushes were represented by Robin, Veery, Wood, Swainson's and Gray-Cheeked.

We also got partial & briefs views of a Great-Horned Owl that was being harassed by a mob of crows.

Overall a smashing day even with the short rain showers.
