Overcast, showers

A visit to Radnor Lake was cut a bit short this morning by an 
untimely shower.  Bird species were nearly the same as the reports
from the past several days.  I saw 12 species of warblers with the 
only new one being a PRAIRIE WARBLER.  The male WILSON'S WARBLER 
continued at the point near the dam.  MAGNOLIA WARBLERs still 
dominate Radnor Lake, being 4 times as numerous as the second
place YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERs.  The mixed warbler flocks were 
primarily at the water's edge and often high in the trees, making
viewing hazerdous to your neck and back.  I ran into Kevin Bowden 
at the dam, where a YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO provided him with his year 
sighting.  A major N. FLICKER migration was underway with 10 birds
found in my short walk.  Still plenty of PHILADELPHIA VIREOs coming
through as well.
