      The strong weather system that passed southwest Florida coast this
      morning inundated Lee Co with the dream birding we all desire. As I
      drove to work along Sanibel to the north tip of Captiva it appeared
      daybreak would be delayed. By 8am about halfway up Sanibel I began
      seeing migrants crossing the road in every direction. At work flocks
      of warblers were streaming in from every direction. By 9 am I'd seen
      13 species of warblers. Wood, Swainson and Veery. Yellow-throated, Red-
      eyed, and White-eyed Vireos. Eastern Wood Pewee- fuggeda about it- I
      don't recall ever seeing so many in one day. Summer and Scarlet
      Tanagers. Left work early to finish the day at Six Mile Cypress
      Preserve inland. Added Baltimore Oriole, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks and
      Acadian Flycatcher plus 3 more warblers species. Absent was prairie,
      black-throated blue, cuckoos, swallows, swifts and goatsuckers.
