A modest flight at the Bashakill

This morning it quickly became evident that the south east winds that came up at about ten miles per hour just before dark had helped a little in bringing in some birds. This is the best push of warblers I have seen so far, but still falls far below expectations. I managed to find a very modest 11 species of warbler, none of which were first of the season. Species that were FOS were Wood Thrush (actually first one last night) and Scarlet Tanager. There were three Wood Thrush and two Scarlet Tanagers. Three Northern Parula were a high count thus far. While Chestnut-sided and Blackburnian Warblers are both on breeding grounds, these were the first I have seen migrating through the Bashakill. At my home, I had my FOS Great Crested Flycatcher this morning.
