Another great bird that was stopping by the garden was two Bobolinks. Bobolinks are normal migrants through our area but they aren't as often seen as heard. That's why I was excited to see these two.

One last little surprise was a Marsh Wren who was pretty elusive. I heard a few short chip call notes and saw it hop up and down on some fencing but it never really came out into good view. This was the best shot I got.... pretty sad.
I had another great day today in the birding world. I joined the Sunrise Birding group led by Luke Tiller on a warbler walk and we were successful! The best part of this trip was the first fifteen minutes when we found a little group of warblers, two of which were life birds for me! Both a Prairie Warbler and a Blackpoll Warbler were part of the group! Not that they are unusual or even uncommon warblers, it just shows how much time I haven't put in to birding during migration. No pictures this time but I'm sure now that I have seen them, they will show up everywhere. Case in point, first great looks at a Wilson's Warbler (not a super common bird) was this week at work, my first CT sighting in fact and today we had two Wilson's Warblers in full view on our walk. Oh Birds!
