Migrants still around- Longvue Gardens

I spent 0820-0905 at Longvue this morning, entirely in the Nature Garden, Secret Garden, and adjacent live oaks on the lawn.  Not bad for 45 minutes; the north winds continue to hold birds in town:
5 Gray Catbird
1 Wood Thrush
3 Red-eyed Vireo
2 Tennessee Warbler
2 Magnolia Warbler
1 Bay-breasted Warbler
1 Chestnut-sided Warbler
1 Black-throated Green Warbler
2 Scarlet Tanager
1 Summer Tanager
3 Indigo Bunting

There were a few presumably breeding American Robins- here at one of their few known breeding sites in the city (ie, Old Metairie and City Park).
