Bay-breasted Warbler

The seventh warbler from my splendid spring migration is a bird that I’ve never seen before, kind of. The juveniles are pale yellow with peachy pits and I see them frequently, both spring and fall, but this guy? Never. I could hardly believe my eyes, and I was so excited I could barely keep the camera steady! This guy came along just a few minutes after I shot the Chestnut-sided Warbler so I was already over the moon, and that I actually knew the identity of this bird was also pleasant surprise.
