Ruby-throated Hummingbird (4; just watch the Jewelweed patches)
Northern Flicker (a few; nothing like yesterday’s flight)
Eastern Wood-Pewee (along the Gill)
Yellow-bellied Flycatcher (1, The Point)
Eastern Phoebe (1, Upper Lobe)
Red-eyed Vireo
Tufted Titmouse (1, The Point)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet (1, Maintenance Meadow)
