Subject: Re: [MDBirding] Cape May Warblers
Cape May Warbler is a spruce budworm specialist, and populations of this forest pest have been building in eastern Canada over the past 6-8 years. Cape May populations tend to wax and wane along with that of their preferred prey. Perhaps there are actually more of them around this year, if budworms are also on the increase.

I even got some bad digiscope images. At one point a male Cape May was in our dogwood tree trying to come to our fountain.
