  More promising nocturnal radar images led to more battered legs and feet yesterday (five hours west to east). When compared with the previous day, there were notable increases in the numbers of Golden and Ruby-crowned kinglets, Swainson's ThrushesChipping Sparrows, White-throated Sparrows, and Dark-eyed Juncos. As before, the best warbler action was in the woods near the fence in the S and T sectors on the northern edge of the NDN Cemetery.
