Palm Warbler

This evening, I believe I spotted a life bird for me, the Palm Warbler, Dendroica palmarum. This bird, a male, was flicking around in some honeysuckle and box-elder undergrowth in Kenny Park. What a find. He was active only about 5-6 feet off the ground, and I got a great view of him with my binoculars. Here are some pictures that I managed to capture with Megan's Kodak P850 ultrazoom camera! What a neat bird, if I do say so myself. I have been looking at birds all winter, and seeing the same species each day. Now, with the migration wave coming through, the woods are just popping with all kinds of colorful new birds. Am I starting to catch the birding bug? Only time will tell!
