Birding was steady this morning with quite a few highlights. About 24 species of warbler were noted. PROTHONOTARY WARBLERS were on Woodland Nature Trail and Tilden Woods, and a HOODED WARBLER was on the Centennial trail north of Camp Henry.The MISSISSIPPI KITE continues to be seen erratically with the latest sighting being from Northwest Beach moving South. After the previous day when it provided great views as well, we hope it sticks around for a bit longer.

A YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT was relocated on the west seasonal trail at Northwest Beach, south of the parking lot.

A WHITE-EYED VIREO was reported at the tip and on Woodland Nature Trail.

A LITTLE GULL and a PILEATED WOODPECKER were also seen at the tip this morning.

Good Birding,
