Comments:
As anticipated, a normal pattern resumed. There was evidently a sizable movement of birds , as despite favorable winds to over fly the coast, there were a lot of birds. Warblers were underrepresented, and evidence strongly suggested birds were leaving after a brief stop. However, one bird very special to me, makes this spring's slog more palatable.

Lawrence's Warbler (hybrid)

This was my white whale. Although I've seen a lot of hybrids, including one earlier this year that may have technically been a Lawrence's, this is the first textbook type I've ever seen. Male, bright yellow overall with black mask and throat, two pale yellow wingbars. Makes up for a lot of slow days.
