The storm front that came through interrupting South winds made Floral pretty active this morning, probably as active as I've seen it this year.  The highlight was a Connecticut right off the bat.  It didn't give much of a view though.  Golden-wings on the other hand, were quite cooperative.  It's been a good spring for them.

This male was singing from about halfway past the cul-de-sac.  A female worked past him as well

Another pair was down behind another corner of the drowned thicket.  The female here is displaying at the male who's just visible on the left side of the frame.

Unrequited by her male, she sat for me at least.

We had over 20 species of warbler at Floral.  Continuing the winged warbler theme though, this Blue-winged was at Chikaming

We circled the park listening for Orchard Oriole (and Blue Grosbeak).  Ironically the Orchard was singing over the parking lot when we got back to the car.

One last bad pic of a decent bird, a female Summer Tanager pitty-tucking over the picnic area at Warren Dunes.  The male flashed by though didn't sit for a pic.
