On Thursday, the Bob m.ob. found 21 species of Wood Warblers including

Barrett - early a.m.), Worm-eating (Bow Bridge), and Hooded Warbler (Persimmon 
slope north of Boathouse), multiple Scarlet Tanagers, and a Least Flycatcher 
(Turtle Pond). Thanks to Ryan Serio for spotting many of Thursday morning's 
birds. We received multiple reports Thursday of Bay-breasted Warbler at the 
Upper Lobe, and one report of a Canada Warbler there. 

Thursday and Friday can easily be said to have been the two best days of 
birding thus far this season.
