Mother's Day Warblers: Blackpoll and Bay-Breasted

Warblers were slow in coming this spring.  But on May 14, after our walk to White's Woods a Bay-breasted showed up near our water feature. The walk, a bust for Warblers but It was a pleasant family walk with a happy hunting dog wandering free.  We all finally spotted a Rose-breasted Grosbeak that was singing loudly.  A Blackpoll showed up later in the afternoon. Swainson's Thrushes were plentiful for about a week in the trees and on the ground.
