Yellow Rumped Warbler at Greenbury Point

Another gorgeous day for the novice birder. Temps in the high 50s early, quickly warming to the 70s. I had my shirt off by 9:00.
I decided to concentrate on the best spots at Greenbury this morning, so I did a quick tour of Possum Point, then headed to the tree farm at Greenbury, where I spent over 2 hours. I didn’t get any great birds, but I got a few good shots.
