Nine participants saw or heard 42 species.  We had a rain-free day and the sun broke through to warm us.  The Natti trail was serene and pleasant.  We tallied 9 species of warblers, including good looks at Canada, Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green, Magnolia and Northern Parula.  The ubiquitous Yellow Warblers and Catbirds entertained us with their songs and chatter as did the Wood Thrushes and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks.  One keen-eyed birded spotted a Yellow Warbler nest, which an Indigo Bunting got too close to and was discharged by the mighty Yellow!  Good birding, good company and good (rain free) weather.
