Northern Parula

This was the target bird for the trip. I did not see it from the normal location during my 0800 to 0900 observation. I was there with another birder named Dane Fagundes from Tulare. I asked him to call me if he saw the Parula since he was going to stay until noon. He saw the bird at 1030 at a location just to the East of its previous sightings, and gave me a call.

Yellow-rumped Warbler
