Another week with a pretty high species count (33) including a returning migrant. Perhaps my favorite little bird of the fall migration was the Blue-headed Vireo, which we saw on several occasions one week. It was back in the same area this chilly May week.

Have a good weekend, enjoy the predicted warm weather, and keep your eyes and ears alert for some new birds.
