Highlights: lots of warblers
There were no birds of particular note today, but there were a large number of warblers. Species seen today included Tennessee, Northern Parula, Magnolia, Cape May, Pine, and Blackpoll. The extended period of south winds is finally supposed to end tomorrow. Hopefully the change will start a new push of southward migration.

Butterflies: Not a lot of activity. American Copper, Monarch, and Cabbage White continue to be seen daily. Mourning Cloak are being seen most days.

As a bit of a side note, came across Indian Pipe at the Point for the first time today.
