Eye Candy: the Magnolia Warbler

It's always a treat to see a warbler!  Yesterday, I got to see a Magnolia Warbler again. They passed through this past spring and I enjoyed a very nice photo opportunity that one day. A couple flitted very near to where I was stalking a couple of Nashville and Tennessee warblers.  I remember I nearly dropped my camera as I saw two of those beauties flit in and amongst our lilac bushes very close to where I was hiding.

Today, another came by - not close enough for a great photo, but enough to identify it.  A pair of Red-eyed Vireos were foraging near where I was watching the warbler, so I grabbed a few shots of them. I wonder if it's the same pair as the couple who had the failed nesting experience earlier this spring.
