This morning was quite birdy, especially near the tip.  Highlights included
several Philadelphia Vireos, and  11 Surf Scoters were spotted flying past
the tip.  A singing Alder Flycatcher proved its identification, and many
warblers including Yellow-breasted Chat, Canada, Mourning, Blackburnian,
Chestnut-sided, Blackpoll, Blue-winged, and a few Orange-crowned Warblers
were spotted up and down the tip trail.

North of the tip along the road a Hooded Warbler was present near the
halfway stop.

The Dunes picnic area, produced both Palm and Blue-winged Warblers.

Another successful Festival of Birds!  We hope to see everyone again next

Thank you &
Good Birding!
