In just about 10 days the passerine migration will be getting hot and heavy with many neotropical migrants due to arrive in the area. Unfortunately I will be out of town for much of May, but the good news is that I will be birding elsewhere, namely Florida, Alaska, and the Gulf Stream off North Carolina (in that order!). So stay tuned for updates and highlights from those trips. I may even post a bit from the road if I am motivated enough to do so! It will be slightly disappointing to miss the bulk of the spring warbler push, but they'll be back next year...
