I was awakened at 6:15 this morning by a Red-shouldered Hawk calling in my backyard. Probably telling me to get up and do some birding!
As soon as I got out of my car, I saw a Broad-winged Hawk circling with a few Turkey Vultures. I logged 10 species on the trail in the first few minutes, but that pace did not keep up, and I ended up with 30 species after hiking the downstream, Glenthorne Loop, and part of the upstream trails. Highlight of the morning was my FOS Orchard Oriole. But still no warblers - wonder if Saturday's storms interrupted migration patterns??

A number of birds were gathering materials for their nests.
