Easter weekend migration

Thurs Apr 1st: Pine Warbler on Princeton campus

Sat Apr 3rd: Yellow-throated Warbler and Pine Warbler singing in the southern NJ pine barrens at Belleplain State Forest and Jakes Landing Road. In the saltmarsh herons dominated the still-quiet marshland with Great Egret, Snowy Egret and Little Blue Heron. An adult female Northern Harrier still lingered.

Sun Apr 4th: a mostly uneventful trip to NYC yielded Ruby- and Golden-crowned Kinglets, Eastern Phoebe, Cedar Waxwing and a possible Barn Swallow on the train ride up. That morning Chipping Sparrow was at my feeders in Ewing.

Mon Apr 5th: on Princeton campus was my FOY Red-breasted Nuthatch, Chipping Sparrow.
Tues Apr 6th: two Yellow-rumped Warblers in my yard

That's a great hummingbird picture. Do you use feeders to attract them? I found those Perky-Pet Top Fill feeders. Have you heard of them? They fill from the top and are pretty easy to clean.
