Magee, lots of migrants 4/23

The boardwalk at Magee Marsh, nw Ohio, had a lot of migrants this morning. I personally saw a dozen warbler species (so far!) and heard of others. Highlights included Worm-eating, Hooded, Orange-crowned, and LA Waterthrush. Non-warblers included Swainson's and Wood Thrushes, Eastern Kingbird, Warbling and White-eyed Vireos, Bank Swallow. Very large numbers of White-throated Sparrows, Yellow-rumped Warblers, and Hermit Thrushes. Little Blue Heron still in area where I reported it on 4/20. I had to leave to come inside for a radio interview, going back out to the boardwalk now, will report more details later.
