I spent a brief time (30 minutes or so from 8:15-8:45) at Radnor Lake this 
morning on the Spillway Bridge. The activity was quite impressive--a constant 
darting of birds, the majority being Tennessee Warblers (20+) in that one spot. 
It seemed every bird I got my binocualars on was a Tennessee Warbler. At one 
point I had three in view all foraging in the open on a bush honeysuckle 
drenched in sunshine. Interspersed with these warblers were a few Magnolias, a 
few Yellow-rumped Warblers, a Black-throated green Warbler and a fair number of 
Rose-breasted Grosbeaks.
The activity was beginning to subside when the call of Killdeer flying overhead 
got my attention as if to signal my time was up.
