Ken and I walked around the Hawthorn Orchard today and saw yellow warblers and a singing Blue-winged warbler. The big surprise was seeing a handsome Lincoln's Sparrow in the hedgerow edge on the east end (viewed from the east side). The bird was silent, but in the excellent morning light it was easy to see the very fine streaks over the buffy wash on the upper breast, the small bill, buffy whisker on face and overall neater look than song sparrow.
After the Hawthorn Orchard we went to Flat Rock. In the cedar trees pposite the parking area on Forest Home Drive we heard a bird singing that turned out to be a nice male Wilson's Warbler! Good birding!
