Sunny; 2-8mph NW winds; 44-58°f, but often felt much warmer; took the water taxi out and back; 10+mph WNW winds overnight had us expecting to be swamped with MYWA and BLJA, but surprisingly low numbers of both. Started in the town, working north towards the neck, but the winds made us re-think that plan so then we worked back through town and towards the bunker. Then checked the west ponds, and headed towards the cemetery (absolutely dead). Then checked the circle marsh and swung by the thickets on the neck just before it was time to leave. A beautiful day with greater diversity than expected. MOWA, PRAW, (mom) and NOWA (Mike) bring the warbler total to 19 for the island for the day which is absurdly high for the date. Mike also had a few ducks we missed, meaning that 100sp would have been possible if we had been trying.
