That's exactly what I was thinking last night. I stepped into my yard on
Twin Lake in Brooklyn Center and saw yellow warblers, palm warblers and
black and white warblers in numbers. Then I walked over to the marsh at MAC
park and all was quiet! I did hear the sora that. Soras nested there last
year and seems like they will again this year. I did see a Nashville
warbler and lots of yellow rumps in the marsh, but much quieter than Weds.
