Kirtland’s Warbler in Adams County Wisconsin on May 27, 2016

I decided to do some searching for a Kirtland’s Warbler in Adams County Wisconsin on May 27, 2016. I had some luck along side a road where a male was singing away. No calls were used in obtaining these images and the images were taken from the road in an area where habitat looked good for this species to breed. Distant images were taken on May 27, 2016.
