Bristol Area Birders,
The last couple of days have been excellent for birding my yard on Compton
Mountain, here in Buchanan County. Sunday I logged 40 species with 8 of them
being warblers. The Sunday warblers included American Redstart 2,
Blackburnian Warbler (beautiful male) 1, Black-throated Green 3, Cape May 2,
Cerulean Warbler 1, Tennessee Warbler 1, Yellow-breasted Chat 2 and
Yellow-throated Warbler 3.

Today (Monday) I counted 41 species with 11 of them being warblers. Monday's
Warblers were Blackburnian Warbler 1 (young female), Black-and-White Warbler
1, Black-throated Green 1, Blue-winged 3, Cerulean 1, Chestnut-sided 1,
Hooded Warbler 1, Golden-winged 1, Tennessee 3, Worm-eating 2,
Yellow-breasted Chat 2.

I took photos of several of these birds. You can see them at
http://www.bcplnet.org/birdclub/gallery.htm  Downloading photos may take a
few seconds because some have more than one photo under one title.  I hope
you enjoy them.

For those interested the complete list for both days follows.

I can't wait for tomorrow morning to see what shows up "heh,heh."

Enjoy the birds,
