This male Prothonotary Warbler is another returning bird to the site! Notice that their breast feathers are not totally yellow but white with yellow tips.
Winds are to shift to the southeast tomorrow and then to the southwest on Thursday so I would say call off work on Thursday and Friday and go birding! However, do not tell the boss I said so!
