Good evening, This morning, 5/7/18, I chose to photograph warblers along the creek, at Whitnall Park. It started off very slow, and didn't really start to get active until about 9am. A few hours later, I was told there was a Prothonotary Warbler at "warbler" bridge. I walked half way around the lake and when I got there, I found it immediately. About 30 minutes later, I had a quick look at a warbler, which I was certain was a female Cerulean Warbler, but it was so fast, and lighting was terrible, it cast some doubt. About 20 minutes later Tom Wood came walking up. I was telling him what I saw so far, and moments later she popped out, right into the same tree, next to the bridge. Sure enough, it was a Cerulean Warbler! Throughout the rest of the afternoon, both the Prothonotary and Cerulean provided good, extended looks. Even after the slow start, I ended up with 16 warbler species and 79 total for the day. Images of the two warblers can be seen at the link below.
