Absolutely fabulous photos Jeremy! Hang on for a week or two, while warblers are still in migration. Thanks for posting!

Thank you! For me it's pretty much over. There are a few lingering ones, but mostly females and hard to find with leaf out now. It actually began very early for us, 4/25 & 4/26 for fallouts for us and was at least a week early.

Some breeding coots from 3 weeks ago.
1st one far away @560mm + cropping.
2nd so close to the walkway that I had to zoom out a little bit.
Otherwise I would have avoided getting so close to the nest.

Yellow-breasted Chat... Very secretive, but I got lucky! I hid behind a small evergreen and waited, he popped back up and continued eating and singing. Either he didn't know I was there, or since I wasn't doing anything, he didn't mind. Best looks ever!
