warbler sp. (Parulidae sp.)  1    Brief view of an intriguing large warbler that suggested a Geothlypis or Oporornis species. Observed perched in open on a dead branch about 2 feet off the ground about 15 feet away. Olive-green and unmarked above and yellowish and plain below with a suggestion an light white eye ring. Did not see it long enough to discern a hooded appearance. Could not safely rule out a Common Yellowthroat,
Rose-breasted Grosbeak  1
