Yesterday morning, I observed a male Cape May Warbler moving about in the treeline near the pond. It was just striking in its bright spring plumage. Having looked back in my records, I found that all the other sightings of this species in the yard, have been during fall migration in either September or October. What a wonderful treat to see one here in May. I also heard and saw my first of the year Red-eyed Vireo in and around the yard beginning yesterday morning. Nice to have one back. The Great-crested Flycatcher returned giving me some good looks after I tracked him down following his call.
