It's a conspiracy!  The best migrant waves come to the yard
at 8:30AM when I have a 9:00AM meeting.  Twice this week!

A somewhat slow morning heated up just as I was about to
leave for work.  I snuck in another 15-20 minutes of birding
before dragging myself away about 8:45 with birds still
coming in as the fog rolled in (and I still showed up just
in time for the meeting).

Highlight was a rather wet but very co-operative Warbling
Vireo that hung around giving long and unobstructed enough
views to make out all the field marks... not easy on a wet
bird... hard enough on a dry one.  3rd or 4th time for this
species in the yard.

Highlights:
All CAPS are new for the yard this year, and this is in
west Knox Co, TN on 29 April.

Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Yellow-throated Vireo
WARBLING VIREO (4th vireo species this spring)
Red-eyed Vireo

Blue Jay (both locals and several blue-collared migrant yankees)

GRAY CATBIRD

BLUE-WINGED WARBLER
CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER
"Myrtle" Yellow-rumped Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler
BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER (gorgeous "Big Orange" male)
BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER (15th warbler species this spring)

Scarlet Tanager


Think I'll be running home for lunch today... there are
advantages to living 3 miles from work.
