Our regular Audubon walk went on in the rain. Our binoculars were swamped but we managed 9 warbler species and 40 altogether before the rain soaked us. Birds were low and close to the entrance to Hunter Island. The rain on the binocular eyepieces made identification tough and I believe there were a few more warbler species, including at least one Golden Wing but it was too difficult to positively identify. Thanks to John Sheridan and “Bronx” Brendan Keogh for their sharp eyes.
