Prothonotary Warbler at Whitnall Park in Franklin Wisconsin on May 10, 2015

I stopped by Whitnall Park this morning for a couple hours. It was a cloudy day with a couple rain drops on occasion with cool temps and a little wind. A couple of the highlight warblers were brief views of a stunning golden-yellow male Prothonotary Warbler and male Bay-breasted Warbler. Some of the other warbler species present were Blackburnian, Yellow, Black-throated Blue, Black and White, Palm, Canada, Magnolia, Chestnut-sided, Northern Waterthrush, Common Yellowthroat and American Redstart. Fun couple of hours watching these warblers feed at a fast pace today. Images were taken on May 10, 2015.

    Yes, Jim, they certainly do feed at a fast pace and you certainly make picture taking look so easy. Oh, we know different . Thanks for sharing these fine pics. We were able to see a variety of warblers today as well and it is always fun to see/find them.
