More warblers! [UPDATED]

Bay-breasted Warbler female, Marblehead Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, Marblehead, MA

It happens quite often. I see a bird for the very first time one day and a day or two later I see it again. Today it was the bay-breasted warbler who flew into photo range. Below is a longer distance photo.

As always, quality warbler photos have been a real challenge this year (even the bay-breasted at top is out of focus if you look closely). Nevertheless, sometimes it feels good just to get anything at all. So here are some more warblers. Enjoy! [UPDATE: I added a few on May 28]
