May glut of Parulas, Rose-breasts, Summers, and Baltimores

4:21 pm

In case some folks are beginning to wonder about the seemingly daily reports of certain eastern vagrants, the running May totals so far for the county of several select species are:
Northern Parula:  10
Rose-breasted Grosbeak:  7
Summer Tanager (coastal-slope):  6
Baltimore Oriole:  3
When the dust settles around mid-June, we’ll have to see to if any of these species set new seasonal records. The Parulas, at least, seem well on their way.
