We've seen lots of Yellow-rumped and quite a few Orange-crowned. Have also several small flocks (6-10) of Wilson's. One Common Yellowthroat in some reeds. A couple Yellow, one Black-Throated Gray, also our first Nashville this morning. There were also a Gray and a couple Hammond's/Dusky flycatchers and a couple Western Tanagers. Sparrow-wise, we had our first Chippings of the year and a still some Lincolns. It seems the windy afternoons the past couple of days has kept the warblers in concentrated flocks. Also, it seems as if they are feeding lower to the ground (and on the ground) more when it's windy. That's a relief for warbler neck!
