Field Notes from the Past #21

Being a continuation of field-journal entries from the springs of 1962 and 1963 when I was a budding ornithologist of just 15 or 16 growing up in the rural village of Galien in Berrien County, Michigan.
May 3 [1962], Thursday

I say my first Connecticut Warbler today. I saw a single bird hopping around amoung [sic] the branches of a tree in a woodland swamp.

A single Palm Warbler, a single Veery, several Myrtle [=Yellow-rumped] Warblers, and many Yellow Warblers were seen on migration. Several of the Yellow Warblers were heard singing.
