White-eyed Vireo at Lake Park in Milwaukee Wisconsin on May 9, 2019

I started out the day at Lake Park with a impromptu bird walk with some friends. The fog was so think you could cut it with a knife. A lot of nice birds were seen but the highlight of the day was the White-eyed Vireo. Jim Frank was the finder of the bird and he hunted us down at the park to let us know about it, thank you! It gave brief views at the rusty bridge and then moved on south. It was birdie on and off. Other nice birds seen were a Scarlet Tanager and Yellow-throated Vireo along with other birds expected to be seen this time of year. Numerous warblers were seen including Magnolia, Chestnut-sided, Palms, Yellow-rumps, Orange-crowned, Black-and-white, Nashville, Northern Parula, Cape May, Prothonotary, Pine and American Redstart. All and all a fun time birding with friends even with the gloomy weather for a good part of the morning. Images were taken on May 9, 2019.
