At 60 degrees, under cloudy skies, fifteen participants, including one visitor from Dublin Ireland, gathered on Pondside to revel in the many, recently-arrived spring migrants.  There were Yellow, Black-and-White, and Black-throated-green Warblers, Redstart, Yellowthroat, Parula, Ovenbird, and Northern Waterthrush.  We found Gnatchatchers flitting, Wood Thrush, and beautifully colored Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Bluebird, Scarlet Tanager and Baltimore Oriole.  Extra special sightings included Great Egret, Orchard Oriole, and Rusty Blackbird.  In all, 41 species counted and enjoyed.
