In the trees and shrubs just south of the Pelican Pub behind the Sunset
Beach resort on the tip of the Eastern Shore Tuesday morning, 0715 to 0820,
after a clear night with N to NE winds, approximately:

150+ Catbirds
100+ Black Throated Blue Warblers
100+ Black and White Warbler
40 N. Parula
40 Red Eyed Vireo
25 Redstart
25 Brown Thrasher
1 Great Crested Flycatcher
1 Black Throated Green Warbler
1 Swainson?s Thrush (wobbly on this one, but I had good looks)
1 Orange Crown Warbler (even wobblier on this one, but a decent, if brief,
plus mockingbirds, Carolina wren, house wren, DC Cormorants, etc.

Birds ID?ed were no more than 1 in 20 of what went through too fast to get
glasses on or flew over.

Had a decent birder been there the counts and species list would have been
much higher.
