A Couple of Warblers

I believe I got really lucky. I went looking for something different. I headed to an area where I had once seen a Baltimore Oriole hoping to maybe see one again. I ended up following my ears. I didn’t know what I was listening to but what ever it was it was close and unfamiliar to me. Finally I saw my first warbler, a Yellow Warbler. I was able to get a few photos but I was on the wrong side of the sun. As I was trying to better my angle my quarry disappeared. I was complaining about the lighting conditions when I noticed I was being serenaded to. There he was a Common Yellowthroat  and was very cooperative. I was able to get
several photos.
