A couple of obviously new migrants are singing in my yard. One is a Blackpoll
Warbler (I always feel a slight resistance to putting Warbler after the name
Blackpoll. It feels as if one were to write Redpoll Finch)
The other is a MOURNING WARBLER. Although its rich rolling song left no room

My counts were different from Chris's I will type in only those which I saw

Tennessee 10+ individuals
Cape May 3 females and 2 males at least
Chestnut sided at least 3
Just a quick note from today’s visit. I didn’t devote as much time actively
birding today as I have on past days. But, it was a nice morning nonetheless.
Others may post additional birds which I did not see or hear.

We have found that nailing orange halves to the siding of our house helps!
Glad they are back for you!

Along with other nice birds, my class and I heard a singing Sedge Wren on
Carncross Road near Howland Island on Wednesday. Also there were a few
shorebirds and a Sandhill Crane.

The Orioles at my house won't eat oranges. What they eat is grape jelly. I
also get Catbirds, House Finches, and House Sparrows eating the jelly. One

Hi Cayuga birders,
It is known that some of the species of birds do not feed on sucrose that is
regular sugar and they can't digest those sugars. So all of them are not sugar
