May 11, 2011 | Birding

May 10, 2011 will go in my record books as the day I SAW Warblers. Yesterday was the 1st time I have seen over 20 species of Warblers in a single day and the 1st time Yellow-rump did not out number others 10 to 1.  I spent much of the day at Crosby Lake Regional Park, 1st with a Audubon Bird Walk and then later with my wife and friends. Highlights were great looks at Bay-breasted, Chestnut-sided and a Mourning Warbler.  Even though I had my camera for some of the day, I concentrated on seeing the birds with the binocs and only caught a few in the camera.  Between Crosby Lake and my own backyard, we finished the day with over 70 species of birds.  This is what Spring Migration should always look like.
