OC Warblers this morning.

I woke up this morning and it was pouring rain. I went back to sleep.
I finally got out around 10:00 and wandered down the road to the Richland county version of the Magic hedge (it's about 100yds of road with trees and shrubs on both sides, close to the road and very thick underneath.) which is usually good for migrants during inclement weather.

there were only three migrants today.
2 Orange-crowned warblers
several Redstarts
3 Magnolias

I'm not sure if the Redstarts were migrants or not.
The 2 Orange crowns were though. They were fun to watch. That makes only the second and third Orange-crowns that I've ever seen. (My lifer was this spring at the other end of the road.)
