Reported on this day
Yellow-throated Vireo
Tennessee Warbler
Blackpoll Warbler
Yellow-rumped Warbler
Yellow Palm Warbler

A technical note that always "bothered me" but too lazy to look up.

"Blackpoll Warbler" is truly Blackpoll Warbler not just Blackpoll (As  
in Common Redpoll) as is sometimes seen

"Harris's Sparrow" is truly Harris's Sparrow not Harris' Sparrow
Same goes for Ross's Gull
