Warbleriest State in the Land of The Free verse 2

Hard freeze (21F in the orchard) this morning. Also in the orchard this morning was an Orange-crowned Warbler, first of the year. That little green blob brings my tickies for 2006 in Tennessee to 37 wood warblers. This is all of the "eastern" warblers except for the highly local (and none of those localities being anywhere near Tennessee) Kirtland's, and the Bird-That-Even-Out-Phantoms-the-Ivorybill, Bachman's Warbler. And all but one of them without leaving the boundaries of this dinky little County; 33 of them without even leaving our own 38 acre homestead.
