Hey Birders,


A slowish day, but with some decent sightings. The first Canada Warbler of the season was a young male banded at Fish Point. A single Horned Grebe was seen off Fish Point and a Yellow-throated Vireo was also seen at Fish Point. Virginia Rail and Sora can be heard at Fox Pond (Fish Point) and at Lighthouse Point. 


A male Kentucky Warbler was seen at Middle Point, giving great looks.


Good Birding,

Ken Burrell
