The last few days I have only seen from four to five warbler species a day at Meadowbrook Marsh and certain areas I go to at East Harbor but today it was noticeably better. It started with having 10 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks in my backyard where I live just west of Lakeside. So I started at Meadowbrook and was there 4-3/4 hrs from 12:00pm to 4:45pm and found 17 warbler species including a Worm-eating Warbler. I wasn't near the beginning of the park most of the time so I missed some birds others got but I was in the far northeast area where there is a grassy path that goes thru the woods that has three loops (like the letter M). Most of the birds were on the ground and the woods were very wet and lush. The birds would move thru quickly and some I saw later and some I didn't see again. But I stayed in the same area as that was where I kept seeing them near the wooden Lions bench. Some I couldn't get pictures of.
Warblers-- Blue-winged 1, Northern Waterthrush 2, Hooded 1-1st year female, Worm-eating 1, Yellow-many, Tennessee, Canada 1 male, Orange-crowned 1, Black-and-White 2, Palm 20, Magnolia 1, Ovenbird 1 or 2, Nashville 3, Black-throated Green 1, Black-throated Blue 1, Common Yellowthroat 1, Yellow-rumped -5.
I saw many Swainson's Thrush but only two Hermit. There were five Rose-breasted Grosbeaks in the woods near the entrance to the park (before you turn left to drive in) that used to be the overflow parking lot just before I left today. Also one Lincoln Sparrow, one White-crowned Sparrow, one Marsh Wren and one Blue-headed vireo,
