Comments:
Temp 80-77F, with increasing S wind, mostly cloudy skies, and even very light rain early on.
Looped through everywhere I could (3.13 miles) but distance edited to negate backtracking. Diversity and numbers of individuals increased through the evening. Best warbler diversity was in the mangroves.
