  1. Hey Guys,

    I wasn’t able to go out this morning because of work, but some nice reports from the local area include 1 Canada Warbler, several Blackburnians, 20+ Swainson’s Thrushes, a Veery, a black-throated blue, some parulas, a palm, and 2 prairie warblers. A scarlet Tanager was also seen.

    Check out all my recent pictures! I am going with Brian and John on the Trip to the Great Lakes in the summer, I can’t wait!

  2. Thanks for the report Dan we really appreciate it as this site works best when it is a collaborative effort.
