Yellow Throated Warbler at Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center.

Hot, humid weather has continued. Any day that includes a life bird is likely to be a good day. The YT Warbler has eluded me for years, so even a poor image will do.

I’ve been spending most of my time at CBEC because it’s open early and has a good variety of birds. The warbler was most unexpected, and other birds have been appearing, so it’s been a worthwhile journey.

I’ll include several days worth of images here, as I’m a bit behind on posting.
