I spent 2 hours at LaFitte's late afternoon today. The winds were calm and a brief shower occurred in Galveston mid afternoon that caused a lot of birds to drop in.
Warblers seen or reported were - Tennessee, 2 Golden-winged, Blue-winged, Nashville, No. Parula, Yellow, Chestnut-sided, Magnolia, female Cape May, BT Green, Blackburnian, Bay-breasted, B&W, Am. Redstart, Ovenbird, No. Waterthrush, YB Chat - total 17 species!
Other migrants were Eastern Wood-Pewee, Eastern Kingbird, Empids, both orioles, both tanagers, Indigo Bunting, RB Grosbeak, YB Cuckoo, Wood Thrush, Veery, Swainson's Thrush, White-eyed, Red-eyed, Philadelphia, Warbling, and Yellow-throated Vireos
There were birds flying around everywhere. This was certainly the birdiest I have experienced this spring.
