During the afternoon a Swainson's Thrush showed well but I only got a brief glimpse of the Wood Thrush.
Yellow-breasted Chats were visible chasing each other around.
Still at Sheepshead, I found two nightjars that got the visiting birders excited. The first was an easily identifiable Chuck-will's-widow.
The second was gray like most Eastern Whip-poor-wills are but seemed to be the size of a Chuck.
No doubt about this guy's ID.
At the Convention Center things seemed to about the same as a couple of days ago. The two Prothonotaries popped in now and then. This Black-throated Green Warbler seemed unusually dark to me.
Both Great Crested Flycatcher and Brown-crested Flycatcher were seen.
Here's the day's list.
