There was a decent morning flight and some lingerers at the hot corner this morning.  ~300 Warblers of 10 species.  As expected for this time of year, mostly redstarts. Who knows how many unidentified non-redstarts were notable.

Highlights:

Hooded Warbler - 2 (one adult male, second of the season)
Red-breasted Nuthatch - 2
Bobolink - 5 (heard, surely more than that actually went over)
Blue-gray Gnatcatchers - 38
American Redstarts - 200+

I had two probable Tennessee Warblers, but neither was seen well enough in flight to be 100% positive.
