Team Pipit went for an extended walk on Ward Hill this morning and came 
up with 12 species of warbler. Numbers were only modest, however, with 
no big wave evident during my pre-breakfast walk. The results:

(7) Yellow-rumped Warbler, (7) Common Yellowthroat, (4) Black-throated 
Green Warbler, (4) Black-throated Blue Warbler, (3) Nashville Warbler, 
(3) Magnolia Warbler, (2) Chestnut-sided Warbler, (2) Blackpoll Warbler, 
(1) Tennessee Warbler, (1) Northern Parula, (1) Bay-breasted Warbler, 
and (1) Wilson's Warbler.

Other interesting sightings included: (6) Broad-winged Hawk, (2) 
Pileated Woodpecker, (1) Ruffed Grouse and (1) Yellow-bellied 
Flycatcher.  Good numbers of White-throated Sparrows were in the field 
early and about a dozen Dark-eyed Juncos were flitting about back in the 
woods later in the morning.
