I was at Barn Island late morn and most of the afternoon and it was definitely a "sweet sweet a little more sweet" day with at least 15 Yellow Warblers singing up a storm and providing some very good looks.  My tally  of YW includes some heard on Palmer Neck RD too.

Other highlights:

2 Black and White Warblers
3 Catbirds
3 E. Towhees
20 Yellowlegs
15 Willets
2 Great Egrets 
1 Snowy Egret
Several Osprey
1 Red-tailed Hawk
Several Barn and Tree Swallows

Certainly not a lot of shorebirds or migrant passerines there today.
