Memorial Day later Prospect reports

The week gets off with a great start even though migration should be finishing up as reports filtered in today of MOURNING WARBLER, and BLUE GROSBEAK in Butterfly Meadow. Dennis Hreshowsik along Bobbi Manian, Ann, &  Mike Yuan were lucky observers of the rare warbler  reported earlier by Ed Crowne and the southern inclined grosbeak. Other reports of YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO & ACADIAN FLYCATCHER provided some excitement as well.

From Mike Yuan

Hi Peter-

Sightings from this morning from the Vale to Lookout via the Midwood.  While up on Lookout with Ann, Bobbi and Dennis, a Blue Grosbeak made a quick appearance while we waited out the Mourning Warbler found by Ed Crowne.  The MOWA sang and chipped frequently, thankfully.
