We have had on and off rain for the past two weeks, plus a similar forecast for next week :-( I drove about 50 miles back and forth on the Blue Ridge Parkway between mm 0 and 19 looking for warblers. Some of my favorite places to stop were either fogged in, or it was raining, although I was finally able to stop at least one time at each site. I only saw three warbler species: Cerulean, Yellow-rumped, and American Redstart, and heard a fourth warbler species: Hooded. Most of the birds were high up in the trees, and only one male American Redstart was a cooperative photo subject. I did see my first-of-season Yellow-throated Vireo near mm 17.
