More Migrants

Luckily there were plenty of bright warblers to brighten this dreary day in southern Indiana. Two of my favorite warblers made their return- Blue-winged and Hooded. There were also quite a few other migrants including a decent number of shorebirds at Stillwater Marsh, a couple vireos, and my first Orchard Oriole of the year. Lots of swallows made their way into the state as well.
A leucistic Common Grackle - he was pretty cool looking.

The highlight of the day - Hooded Warbler. He never sang but gave a chipped note the whole time I watched him.
