Finally. I got a photo of this beautiful warbler. There's a local wetland I visit when 1) I get up too late to hit some other spots. 2) don't have much time or 3) too lazy to go out farther. I've heard this warbler everytime I've visited the wetland in the spring/summer and have seen it once or twice. Ont this day, I was about to pack it in, but decided to check out the water to see if I'd see any beavers and something yellow flashed by. I thought it was a gold finch, but my trusty binoculars spotted this handsome fella. I spent some time or rather he spent some time with me. I took tons of photos, just in case I never get another shot.
