6 warblers at Bond Park

I birded from first light til 8:15 (had to get to work) in the south end of the
park. Light rain the first hour kept the individual numbers low, but I did ID 6
warblers: black-throated blue, ovenbird, black-and-white, Northern parula, pine,
and blue-winged (a life bird). Of those, I actually saw only 1, the BTBW.
Location information below. The blue-winged was the last bird for the day and I
had to scamper off to make a conference call, so I couldn’t stay to search for
the bird. That will have to wait for another day.
