Cool out and little sun but a nice day for warblers, thrushes, woodpeckers, vireo's and grosbeaks May 11, 2013

Not expecting a good birding day we did have lots of species and the best warbler-thrush day of the year. Also, grosbeaks everywhere. It was a 5 thrush day with Wood, Hermit, Swainson's, Veery and Robin. Fourteen species of warblers with the highlight a nice Parula. Grosbeaks were everywhere. I believe we had more than a dozen.
