Another cold gloomy morning, no Yellow-throated Warblers yet and the 20 or so Swamp Sparrows, which were there Friday, appear to have gone. Highlight was a pair of Common Mergansers on the river, seen from the bluffs. Thanks to my friends Laura Dooley and David Humble for picking up these, also to Laura for picking up the newly arrived Chipping Sparrows in the historic area.
