I also saw Cape May, black-and-white, chestnut-sided, Magnolia, and American redstart warblers today! Plus a female scarlet tanager (heard the male singing yesterday but haven't seen him yet).

Except for the phones and my internet going down in the storms, it was heavenly
Wow, that's an impressive array of birds. I would have been watching the feeders for hours with a crew like that. Who needs a phone or internet when you have that to watch.
