Cape May Warbler

October 19, 2018: Exciting! This morning when I was looking for the Purple Finches, a Cape May Warbler popped up right in front of me in beautiful early morning light! Even though it is not a new bird for me, and it is not even very rare, it is nonetheless unexpected at this location, and the first time I have seen one in this park or in Virginia (the only only other time I had seen one was nearly 4 years ago in Maryland).
