I also encountered one or two large warbler flocks in Sapsucker Woods at lunch time. The first one was near the eastern intersection of the Wilson Trail and the Severinghaus Trail, past the Podell boardwalk from the CLO building. This flock was moving toward the building. About 30 minutes later I found a flock along the trail across the street from the visitor parking lot where the trail from the powerline cut hits the road. This flock was moving toward the powerline cut. In both flocks I found multiple Bay-breasted as well as at least one Black-throated Green and one Blackpoll Warbler. In the second flock I also found a Northern Parula and a Magnolia. In the first flock Blackpoll and Bay-breasted individuals came down to eye level, making for a great comparison and allowing me to see the yellow feet of the Blackpolls, and one Bay-breasted came to the ground close to the trail.
