  1. After hearing about Bill’s Blue-wing I headed over to add it and the Rose-breasted Grosbeak to my “Little Year”.

    I didn’t have any good pics of Blue-wing so I chased the one at Barnes around for an hour and a half… and I still don’t have a really good pic.

    I saw some movement of birds on the radar and with the SW wind and rain bands hitting our area around 3-4am I figured there may be some new migrants in the area.

    I first went to Sadowski, there was a Palm Warbler, Common Yellow-throat a Prairie and a BT Blue…. But that was it.

    Then I went to AD Barnes I had:

    Prairie 3
    BT Blue 6-8
    Ovenbird 2
    Redstart 4
    Northern Parula
    Blackpoll 3
    Wormeating 10
    Black and White 8
    Cape May
    Magnolia 2
    Black-throated Green
    Black-whiskered Vireo
    Blue-headed Vireo
    Rose-breasted Grosbeak – while I was sitting in the van getting ready to leave….

    Between the two spots I had a 14 Warbler Day
