Karen Seward, Marvin Smith and I spent a couple of hours this morning along the wooded/brushy edge of Lake Sheri (a stone's throw from Exit 18 of I-75) and found 11-12 species of warblers and 3 vireos.
Best birds were a male Wilson's Warbler and a bright Philadelphia Vireo. Totals were:
Prothonotary Warbler (1)
Wilsonís Warbler (1 ad male)
Chestnut-sided Warbler (4)
Magnolia Warbler (3-4)
Palm Warbler (1-2)
Pine Warbler (3)
Northern Parula (1)
Yellow-throated Warbler (1-2)
Northern Waterthrush (1, heard only)
Common Yellowthroat (1-2)
American Redstart (ca. 10)
Philadelphia Vireo (1)
Red-eyed Vireo (2)
White-eyed Vireo (1)
Eastern Wood-Pewee (1)
Also, we had an intriguingly possible Mourning Warbler; on Sat., Marvin and I got a quick face, head and back view, which was consistent with a first fall Mourning, but "BVD." The bird flew into a thicket and stayed there, moving a bit, but never again visible. Today, the three of us heard some call notes consistent with Mourning coming from the same thicket, but a several minute wait produced no sightings of the bird making the calls.
That brings to 16 or 17 the number of warbler species Marvin (with and without others) has seen this fall at this new migrant hotspot.
