> I birded the pine grove at Sherwood Island for a short time this morning. I have never seen such warbler/migrant activity here before. It reminded me of Monhegan Island in Maine and I added a few new birds to my Westport and Sherwood Island list. This would have been a good day to have other birders to see all the birds frantically feeding on the ground, mid-level, and high in the trees.The big surprises were the Nashville and Cape May Warbler. Here are my highlights before having to leave for work.
