Black-throated Green Warbler 1f
Chestnut-sided Warbler  1 (1st year female)

Other migrants were

Blue-headed Vireo 1
Brown Thrasher 2
Eastern Wood Pewee 1
Gray Catbird 3
Rose-breasted Grosbeak 2
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1

Today I saw my first Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (male) of the season.

Enjoy the birds,
