Spring passerines

I did really well from a numbers standpoint this May, tallying every warbler, vireo, and flycatcher that could reasonably be expected.  I took a lot fewer photographs though, but I'll put a few here.

And what says May migration like pics of flycatchers???

Eastern Wood-pewee actually was one of the more cooperative birds this spring.

I saw Yellow-bellied Flycatcher a few times.  While lighting matters for a lot of birds, it really matters for this one...

This (silent) one is probably a Willow.

Ok, ok, a couple warblers.  It is May after all!
