I stopped by Garret Mountain on my way home from work around 330-4 PM and was surprised at the nice variety of birds around. In fact my best single day for total numbers of Warbler species all spring. Got to see my FOS (First of Spring) Lincoln’s Sparrow and a beautiful Orchard Oriole and racked up 19 warbler species that were rather low in the trees probably on account of the wind. Not many birds calling (it was early afternoon) and I definitely noticed the thicker leave cover than just a week or two ago. Lost a few birds without seeing an exit due to this including the Blackburnian Warbler. Weather was nice and no bugs around. Also heard two Great Horned Owls calling to each other on Wilson Road as I was leaving. What a treasure Garret is!
