Palm Warbler, Finally

   Every year during warbler migration there can sometimes be so many Palm Warblers at birding hotspots that they almost become a nuisance as their flitting about demands your attention as you try to pick out rarer birds.  At times they seem to be everywhere.....everywhere, that is but my yard.  With a yardlist of 135 species that included 20 warblers, the Palm's absence was glaring . Then this morning,  this individual stopped by for a photo shoot. 

Palm Warbler #136 on the yard list
 This Magnolia Warbler also came by.

   Then for some reason all the small birds ducked for cover.
