Ron Payne and I this morning found that Button Bay State Park also had 
many birds today.

During a flurry of birds on the ground, in shrubs, in trees, and in 
flight, we both saw a bird fly into a sapling ash and both alternately 
started calling out the features we saw:  "No wingbars, yellow 
undertail-coverts, faint breast streaks, drab, olive greenish, split-eye 
ring .... Orange-crowned Warbler!!"  It was only when we lowered our 
binocs that we realized we were looking at different birds.  There were 
two of them!
