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!
