All, In the trees and shrubs just south of the Pelican Pub behind the Sunset Beach resort on the tip of the Eastern Shore Tuesday morning, 0715 to 0820, after a clear night with N to NE winds, approximately: 150+ Catbirds 100+ Black Throated Blue Warblers 100+ Black and White Warbler 40 N. Parula 40 Red Eyed Vireo 25 Redstart 25 Brown Thrasher 1 Great Crested Flycatcher 1 Black Throated Green Warbler 1 Swainson?s Thrush (wobbly on this one, but I had good looks) 1 Orange Crown Warbler (even wobblier on this one, but a decent, if brief, look) plus mockingbirds, Carolina wren, house wren, DC Cormorants, etc. Birds ID?ed were no more than 1 in 20 of what went through too fast to get glasses on or flew over. Had a decent birder been there the counts and species list would have been much higher. Tom Saunders You are subscribed to VA-BIRD.
